About Compass Montessori School and Golden, CO

Set in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Compass Montessori School is a Charter school in the Jefferson County school district outside Denver. The middle school campus is a Farm School where students rotate through three Occupations in service of the school community. High School students spend one day a week in "AWOL" – a program to foster internship and community service time in our broader community. One of two public Montessori high schools in the Denver area, Compass Montessori also contributed to the pilot program, Pinwheel Coffee, in the Highlands district of Denver.

Located in an area of spectacular natural beauty, Golden is where the mountains meet the plains.  The area offers outstanding outdoor recreation with biking, hiking and kayaking all available right in town.  But Golden also offers a wonderful, small mountain town atmosphere with creekside restaurants, outdoor cafes, fine dining, art galleries, outdoor recreation shops, one-of-a-kind boutiques, quaint historic homes, and a variety of museums. 

And then there is the beer.  Golden is home to the world’s largest brewery, as well as to a half dozen craft breweries and distilleries. Learn more to do at
