7th – 12th Grade

Welcome to School Year 2018-19!

 

This year we have several new and exciting changes.  We have restructured the School for the Deaf into two departments; preschool through 6th grade and 7th grade through 12th grade.  Additionally, we are welcoming several new staff to both teams.  All of these changes help us continue our efforts to meet student needs. I am very excited to embrace this new year and all of the successes we have before us!

 

Sincerely,

Kristen Huddleston

Principal, School for the Deaf 7th-12th grades

In Bryan Zigler’s Pre-Algebra class, students are learning about different properties within math. Students make a visual tool, writing the definition of each of the math properties, with examples. The goal is to give students a deeper understanding of how a given equation functions in mathematics. At the end of the lesson, each student made a Kahoot game for their peers, demonstrating their understanding of these mathematical properties.
