         Greetings from The Hoenderloo Groep teachers and leaders in Hollan

CLSI helps to create healthy school cultures where 
    leaders provide clear direction, 
        teachers reclaim their passion, 
           families participate in learning, and
               everyone works together so students can thrive.

   Your Compass for Success programs 
    in secondary schools include: 
  •       The Compass Course 
      The Compass Anti-Bullying Program.

The Compass Course is a 5-step character and life skills development program that teaches students the 5 Elements of Success (see above image). It has been used for years in middle and high-schools where it has been shown to: 
  • increase standardized test scores
  • reduce stress
  • improve classroom behavior and participation
  • increase attendance (to meet AYP goals)
  • improve school culture. Read more
In 2010 educators requested that CLSI augment The Compass Course to form The Compass Anti-Bullying Program, which targets the root causes of bullying, victimization, by-standing and other destructive behavior. The Compass Anti-Bullying Program is distinct from other approaches in that it addresses the root causes of bullying at all levels while proactively directing students' attention to developing vital skills for their own success in life, relationships, and work. Read more
