Elementary School

Welcome to our Elementary School!


The Elementary Department teaches students in Kindergarten through Fifth Grade. We teach in American Sign Language (ASL) so the students receive direct instruction in their language. We also offer Speech services and practice auditory skills as student needs indicate.


We believe in the importance of teaching our students in a variety of ways: whole group instruction, one-on-one individualized attention, multi-age groups, hands-on learning, real-life situations, and thematic units.


The students are taught the following subjects: English, Writing, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Physical Education.  Some of the fun “extras” the Elementary Department students get to do include: field trips, designing and growing a Community Garden, and participating in the “Angels of Hope” program.
