I like it here. Art class is lots of fun. I have learned about different cultures in different countries and the art they do there.  Science and math are my favorite classes. I like learning about planets and I like to multiply in math.

I LOVE it here! The teachers care about you. There are many more learning opportunities for the deaf here -- small classes and lots of attention in school. Being here has helped with my experiences in life. I can play sports and participate in drama and plays. I can communicate with my friends. I can have a social life -- like going to the prom.

The school meets all my needs - a computer with JAWS and braille! Lots of braille books to read! I have a math tutor here. My music teacher is great! She really takes time to explain the music and all the songs. I have learned independent living skills. I am a member of HALTER and the Pony Club. I could not have done that in public school. I have lots of friends here that I get to hang around with.

Learning is important to me so I like that we have a study hall. I get to study with my friends. We help each other learn.  I use the CCTV (closed circuit television) and the magnifier. I love my classes in art, drama and creative writing. I like helping the younger students get around and with their needs.

The teachers here give me great support and help when I need it. I really like working on computers and they have lots of programs that I can use being visually impaired. They will help me with my future plans too - like being a rapper. I’m really good at that and they encourage me.

I like my teachers at school. They are nice. I love to ride the horses and go swimming in the pool. I have many friends and like to play with them. Reading books and math are my favorite school subjects.

My favorite things are playing soccer and the other sports here. My team won a silver medal in the National Special Olympics soccer tournament. I like to learn different subjects in school.
