Home / The Compass School Facility Redesign


The Compass School community wishes for a permanent campus facility that matches the quality of the programs offered here. Currently, our school’s 20+ acre campus is comprised of active and inactive permanent structures along with two leased modular buildings. In looking at the current needs of our campus and our students, the greatest concern and priority for our school lies in the use of the modular classrooms.

In 2017, The Compass School officially embarked upon a mission to redesign our facility. A request for proposals was posted on our school’s website and Saccoccio & Associates was hired for Stage I. They delivered and presented an architectural design feasibility report in September. In October, a request for proposals was posted on and Torrado Architects was hired for Stage II. They delivered and submitted a Stage II application to RIDE.  

**Current Stage: Stage IV

Request for Proposal: General Contractor
