Project compass is an amazing school! I have attended project compass for what is about to be two years and I can honestly say I love it. All the teachers and staff really care for the students. It's an amazing environment! Everyone is so close we're like one big family! The teachers are wonderful! They work with every student 1 on 1 to know what they need in order to succeed. They try to meet your needs as much as possible and they do everything in their power so that you can graduate! If you're thinking about going to this school, I highly recommend it!
