Character Development

As a student of learning, you must set high expectations for yourself. We challenge students to produce their own set of goals to achieve success. This is sometimes easier said than done, as different students find different desires motivating. Individuals also find different ways to achieve their goals, too, and as professional educators, we listen and pivot curricula, resources, and personnel to make student excellence possible.


AZ Compass promotes a commitment to excellence in education and life by developing strong student character values that are used to improve the lives of our students, their families, and our community. AZ Compass focuses on foundational student character development that establishes our core values. These six character traits are the values we instill in all of our students, staff, and families.


Understanding your core values is the beginning of the journey. Continued development of character strengths includes students, teachers, parents, and leadership within our community. To lead others, you must first learn to lead from within. U.L.E.A.D. is the foundation by which we individually strive to achieve success. U.L.E.A.D. entails an Unwavering Commitment, Leading by Example, Expecting the Best, Achieving Results, and Dedicating Time.


Establishing personal core values and leading oneself is the start of making a great impact within a team. A team is built from strong individual contribution, support and commitment. At AZ Compass, our students learn how to cultivate their own growth through personal passion, individualized instruction, and challenging goals. Students also learn that through self-discipline, teams can accomplish victories that no single student could achieve alone. As a team, WE IMPACT our school, our community, and Chandler, AZ as a whole. We empower one another to make changes and embody strong student character values as a team.
