Feeding the Community with Hope Journal - Beautiful reflections on Community Service Winter Term work at Our Place Drop-in Center and experience with issues of hunger and homelessness in Vermont.
Baltimore Poetry Book (6MB PDF) - This collection of personal expression reflects a group of individuals who know ourselves more now because we know each other. We have gathered up pieces of one another and patched them together in our minds and hearts.
Film Festival Videos - In what is now an annual tradition, the Compass Student Film Festival attracted almost a dozen past star actors and directors and a standing room only crowd. Judges praised what were by far the highest quality films produced here, as the story telling and technical expertise leap ahead each year. Film festival DVD's are for sale through the school.
(Parental Advisory: Some of these films contain mature subjects and should be considered PG-13)
Middle School at Compass: Student Views: A quick video made by Middle School students to share what they think of their experience.
