The majority of the teachers are NOT certified in Education of the Deaf. The majority of teachers are not able to sign fluently. Students in this school read at a level lower than the national average (3rd-4th grade level) for students who are Deaf or hard of hearing. Disappointed that my child attended this school and lost valuable time.
