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. The parents who created Compass Montessori are committed to the Montessori philosophy because of the positive learning experience their children have had in Montessori schools. In keeping with this teaching philosophy, the school's campus (the Wheat Ridge Pre-K through 6th Grade campus is located at 10399 West 44th Avenue in Wheat Ridge and the Golden PreK through 12th Grade campus is located at 4441 Salvia Street in Golden) has ample space for indoor and outdoor education and play. Multi-age classrooms, with children acting as both students and teachers, foster a close-knit community where children learn to respect themselves, others and the environment. Children progress at their own pace, mastering a set progression of skills and learning objectives. This self-paced curriculum with traditional Montessori materials encourages independence, problem-solving, and a lifelong love of learning. Historically, Montessori elementary students do well compared to their elementary peers. Montessori schools are academically high-rated schools, and Compass Montessori plans to continue this tradition.
Mission Statement - 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.
