Welcome To Bronx COmpass High School
Dear Compass Community:
We are excited we have finally met our new Class of 2024 Dragons and welcome back all of our returning Dragons and their families for the 2020-2021 school year, whether you are joining us in person or virtually.
We understand this new school year will bring many changes, but we are certain that we can successfully adapt to this new normal together.
Our pledge is we will always strive to make Bronx Compass the safest learning community for everyone, and continue to work together to make this the best school year possible for each and every Bronx Compass High School stakeholder.
As we continue through the first semester of the school year, we would like to take this opportunity to remind you that you can continue to access important information related to staying safe and on track, right here on our website, and by checking your emails regularly.
We appreciate your patience and we value your feedback as we work together to implement new protocols and standards to ensure a safe learning environment for a healthy school year.

Home of the Fearless Dragons
There are so many things that make our Bronx Compass High School Community great. We are a diverse group of individuals who come together to support, learn and grow with each other. With almost 20 different after school clubs, including dance, journalism, video game club and chess, there's something for everyone. In our 2018/19 school year, our dragons went on over 30 cultural, educational, recreational, community service and post-secondary trips to places including Washington D.C., several Broadway shows (Hello Hamilton!) and Pineridge Dude Ranch. Pair all this with our focus on academics and administering to the whole student, Bronx Compass is the place to be!
Stick around, explore a little and watch us spread our wings.
