Posted April 9, 2010

I love this school, which serves deaf and hard of hearing students from K-12. Everyone here, from teachers, to cooking staff, to janitorial staff, sign to the kids. Many of the teachers, administration and support staff have been with the school for several years. The best thing about the school is that they view each of the kids as a 'whole' and collaborate to help each child learn in a way that is relevant to that child.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
