My son who is hard of hearing and has Down Syndroms has been attending Kendall since he was about 5 months old. They have an incredible team of loving and supportive teachers who work very closely with the parents to address each individual student's needs. Our child is now in his 1st year of full-day preschool and we receive daily email updates on the classroom activities for the day and individual reports about our son, not to mention, a newsletter every Friday and home visits to work with his teacher on his progress. For student's with special needs, they are also able to provide auditory sevices, speech, occupational and physical therapy. We love it here and truely feel that they love us!!!

More information: What GreatSchools fails to mention is that Kendall serves children who are deaf, hard of hearing- thus the mention of 'special education'; students use hearing aids, cochlear implants or nothing. American Sign Language is used for instruction; individual and group services include speech, audiology, physical therapy, counseling, plus more that I may not be aware of. Transportation services is provided if pick-up/drop-off is within 15 miles (of the school or the Capitol Building, I'm not sure). Please visit the school if you are considering placement for your Deaf or Hard of Hearing child.
Bus transportation is provided for KDES students within a 15-mile radius of the U.S. Capitol at no cost to the student. Students residing outside of the 15-mile radius may still receive transportation services at pick-up and drop-off points within the 15-mile radius.
Our mission is to inspire and support families to champion their children's education - at
school, at home and in their community. We are a national non-profit with offices and programs
in Oakland, Milwaukee, Washington D.C. and Indianapolis.
