Our philosophy at Compass High School is that like so many other opportunities in a small school, athletics should be a rewarding experience that is encouraged for all of our students. Our goal is to provide athletic opportunities that are competitive but also inclusive. We participate in the Bay Area Small School Athletic League (BASSAL) which offers Basketball, European Handball, Table Tennis, Dodgeball, and Cross Country.


Clubs are one way students can share and pursue their unique interests with like-minded peers. At Compass, students who have a topic they are passionate about are highly encouraged to start a club. Clubs are embedded into the school day and meet once a week, so that every student can participate. All clubs are led by faculty advisors.

Club offerings vary from year to year depending on student interest. Examples of club offerings are:

  • Arts and Crafts
  • Drama
  • Board Games
  • Photography
  • Student Council
  • Walking
  • Yearbook
