It's about to Begin...
New Compton High Construction!

The Compton Unified School District is excited to announce that the planning and preparation for the new Compton HS project will begin this Fall 2018. When complete, the new Compton HS campus will include state-of-the-art classrooms, fine arts and sports facilities that will benefit the students and community of Compton. 

In order to begin the planning and preparation phase, incoming 9th grade students and teachers will be transitioned from the Compton HS campus to the Roosevelt MS campus this Fall as the first phase of planning the project begins. Although students will be attending classes on the campus of Roosevelt MS, the students will still be considered Compton HS students and the teachers will be teachers from Compton HS. This transition will affect multiple schools across the district, including your student’s current or future school.

We want this transition to be a great experience for everyone, so we have worked hard to make sure that students will have access to all the programs and activities they would normally have at the Compton HS campus. The district has been working diligently to make the students’ time on Roosevelt’s campus enriching, memorable and positive.

This transition will involve the following school sites:

Compton HS                          Bunche ES                                    Laurel ES

Davis MS                                Clinton ES                                     Mayo ES

Enterprise MS                         Dickison ES                                    Roosevelt ES

Roosevelt MS                         Emerson ES                                    Tibby ES

Walton MS                             Kelly ES                                   

Anderson ES                          Kennedy ES
