Compton Drew was an amazing expirence for me. I was there for the full threee years and the staff was so supportive. I was very sucessful during my three years because of my teachers and the principal. They work with you that way you fully understand they assignment but they also push you to try your hardest.

My child is in her second year there and she has done very well. They have been wonderful as far as loss of her father and space and time for adjustment and help with anything you need. We just need more parents to get involved.

This is my daughter's last year at Compton-Drew and has done well all three years. The teachers are great and take extreme care in her education. The principal is terrific, knows the students by name, and cares about each one individually. She has excellent repoire with the students. They also think highly of her, and it shows in the atmosphere of the school. The teachers are caring and work with the students if they have a problem that they can't work out on their own. I would strongly recommend Compton-Drew to anybody that asks.
