Curriculum

Our school offers a complete academic program for Deaf and Hard of Hearing students from preschool through high school graduation. Students enroll in the school as young as three years old and continue to graduation.


The school is committed to the academic development of each of our students. Through the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) process, teachers and support staff strive to develop and implement a program designed to promote and develop each child's educational needs. The division endorses a bilingual environment throughout the school. American Sign Language (ASL) is the language of instruction with English strongly emphasized across the curriculum..

The school is accredited by the Indiana Department of Education through the Performance Based Accreditation (PBA) and the Conference of Educational Administrators Serving the Deaf (CEASD). The school follows the rigorous Indiana Academic Standards. Students are assessed through the ISTEP+, IMAST,and ISTAR assessments given to all the students in the state of Indiana. In addition students are tested twice a year using the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) test to determine academic growth across the school year.
