    The COMPASS School is a private special education day school located in Dorchester that serves elementary, middle and high school students from 6-21 years of age. Each student has an Individualized Education Program that provides a comprehensive, individually focused service plan.

    The Upper School Program has two classrooms designed to enrich students’ academic learning environment, while meeting the social/emotional needs of the student. Students’ ages range from 14-21 and come from various backgrounds. Each student has an Individualized Educational Program (IEP) to address social/emotional, behavioral, and intellectual disabilities. Students are divided in to two classrooms based on their grade level (9th and 10th graders together and then 11th and 12th graders together). Both classrooms focus on core curriculum (Math, Science, History, and English Language Arts) along with Computer Literacy, Art, Transitions, and Building Maintenance Repair.
