Montessori Compass: A new way for Campbell to Communicate with Parents
A major part of our communication with parents is Montessori Compass. We use Montessori Compass to take attendance, record lessons and write progress reports. Teachers may also be posting some photos to the site, and will send you a message if they do so. You may also send a message to your child’s teacher or to another parent through the site.

Online Montessori Progress Reports
Montessori Compass generates custom Montessori Progress Reports. Even the most engaged parents can find it challenging to effectively understand their child’s progress in the Montessori classroom. Montessori Compass makes it easy for parents to see tangible evidence of their child’s academic and social development in an easy-to-read format. MC’s comprehensive Online Montessori Progress Reports compile all of the lessons presented to the student over the selected period of time and may include personalized notes from the teacher. Parents can view student progress reports on the web via the parent portal.
Montessori Materials Photos & Descriptions
Have you ever wondered about Metal “Insects”? Parents choose a Montessori education for many reasons, but few truly understand what the Montessori Method is all about. There is a learning curve with the unique terminology used in the Montessori classroom, especially for new parents. MC aims to help educate the parents alongside the child by sharing customizable photos & descriptions of common Montessori works (i.e. it’s Metal Insets, not Insects!) Increased awareness of the many benefits of a Montessori education leads to increased appreciation.
Online School Directory
Parents who have ever tried to organize a birthday party or play date for their child will appreciate the convenience of having an easy way to connect with other parents. Messages are instantly sent via Montessori Compass messaging - not email. Therefore, all personal information (email addresses, phone numbers, etc.) are always kept confidential. This allows schools to leave it up to the parents as to what information they would like to share and with whom.
