About Compass Montessori School
Compass Montessori School is a Preschool through 12th grade Colorado Public Charter School that was approved by the Jefferson County School Board on December 11, 1997, and opened in the fall of 1998.
Utilizing authentic Montessori methods, the Compass community aims to nurture the whole child and enrich the lives of each student from Preschool to 12th grade. Compass will provide appropriate challenges and support to enable each student to prepare for the intellectual, spiritual, emotional, social, physical, and societal transitions appropriate to each student's inner vocation. Our goal is to foster competent, responsible, and independent citizens who love learning and respect themselves, other people, and their environment.
