About Our School
The Student Empowered Learning Facility (S.E.L.F.) located on the Compadre Campus is a public/private partnership school. The partnership provides the Tempe Union High School District with local control and support, fluidity of placements, and significant fiscal savings.
S.E.L.F. Compadre provides the highest level of social/emotional support for each student while maintaining the rigor of academic standards. We modify curriculum to meet individual student learning needs and provide therapeutic supports to teach social, behavioral and academic skills necessary for success in school, community and careers.
- Students in the program focus on core academic subjects and are recommended to attend by an IEP team.
- Positive behavior intervention supports and social-emotional curriculum are embedded in daily programming.
- S.E.L.F. aims to support student reintegration to home schools by preparing them with necessary knowledge and skills. Any decision to reintegrate a student will be made by an IEP team based on specific exit criteria outlined in the student’s IEP.
