Established in 2012, Compass is a Bay Area college preparatory program designed for students with Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, ADHD, 2E, and Anxiety. Compass High School was founded by a group of parents who were looking for a school that could work with their students in a different way. A school that created a safe, nurturing environment while challenging students at the same time. A school that saw the humanness in every student and family. A school flexible enough to build around students’ strengths while supporting learning challenges.
