School for the Deaf
The School for the Deaf provides a comprehensive academic program for students who are deaf or hard-of-hearing in grades K-12. Teachers challenge each student to achieve his/her potential in a signing environment that promotes the development of language and a positive self-concept. Annually, a team of professionals develops an individualized education plan for each student. The development of language, communication skills, critical thinking skills, appropriate social skills, and application of learned concepts are emphasized. Opportunities to mainstream in areas of strength are provided through a collaborative effort with the local public school districts.

This year’s School for the Deaf Yearbook class worked very hard. They added lots of pictures and worked with students in English/Language Arts classes, from both schools, to add more captions. Their efforts ensure we have the best yearbook! The students came up with a neon theme for the yearbook, it will be a colorful yearbook! Make sure you order your yearbook online at www.treering.com!
