The Compass Rose academic program builds a strong fundamental foundation of reading,
writing, mathematics skill, and content knowledge for each of our students. We believe
students must have a strong fundamental base in these areas in order to be successful in any
class, so we spend double the amount of time in literacy and math classes as more traditional
We also believe critical thinking is essential to student success. The Compass Rose academic program is developed to teach this skill early in the curriculum and to help students develop effective critical thinking habits and apply them in a wide array of contexts to demonstrate deep mastery of each subject.
Each campus focuses on what our community needs for its students to succeed and those needs are determined through robust community engagement and involvement. We commit to
serving our communities and in turn prepare children for college and to become leaders in their
community. All instruction is TEKS-aligned with a focus on student discussion, inquiry,
problem-solving and deep understanding of content. All high school students are on the Texas
Distinguished Graduation plan with a college-preparatory curriculum and experience to prepare students for AP coursework and beyond.
