CSDR is one of the best schools a Deaf student can attend. They have complete language access because all of their peers and most of the staff are fluent in ASL. In addition to great academic curriculum opportunities students also get the chance to be involved in any extracurricular activity they want to. We have CIF competitive teams in football, volleyball, basketball, track, cross country, baseball, softball and wrestling. There are leadership opportunities available as students they can participate in class offices, and asbg. Our Deaf Academic Bowl team won the western regionals last year and have an undefeated team this year. In addition to core academics (English math history etc. ) we have a vibrant CTE department with fantastic real world programs such as construction technology, automotive, graphic design, video production and more. Approximately half of our students are residential students who spend the week here in newly built cottages that are beautiful, spacious and cozy at the same time. Students get an opportunity to sign 24/7 allowing for primary language development.
