We’re Passionate About People
People First Organization
We put people first in all that we do because we know that working in education is hard and transformational. Putting people first means providing our educators with the tools, skills, and feedback they deserve.

Our Core Habits Represent Who We Strive to Be
our Core Habits
Setting the Table
When we set expectations, we are setting the table – putting our saltshaker in the center. Whenever the saltshaker is off-center, we move it back. First, we set explicit expectations: we set the table and place the saltshaker exactly where we want it. Then, when it gets moved, we apply constant, gentle pressure to make sure it always goes back to the center.
The Dirty Jersey
The “dirty jersey” is a metaphor for a player who displays focused purpose and tenacity on the field. A player’s jersey gets dirty when they dive for balls, slide into bases, and are passionate about the end goal. In our schools, we all play like that – we hustle, we do our jobs, we help others with their work, and we stretch ourselves to accomplish more than we ever thought we could. We don’t work hard just for appearances; we work hard because equity work is hard and is going to require more from us than we’ve ever given.
The Joy/Love Thing
We believe in affirming our humanity through the powerful connection of our emotional culture, where we are affectionate, caring, and compassionate toward one another, toward our scholars, and toward our community. It takes more than surface-level gestures to show people we care. We invest our time and our hearts into our people. We work and operate with love, and that makes us different.
Frequently Asked Questions

We require certifications for Special Education and ELA teachers. Outside of that, the state does not require charter school teachers to be fully certified. We seek educators with content expertise, critical thinking skills, and alignment with our mission and values.

Yes. The Compass Rose Teaching Residency is a two-year innovative residency program that provides aspiring teachers with a supportive and hands-on pathway to teaching.
