Indiana School for the Deaf Reviews

3 reviews
I came here this school for only education. I do have very few good friends here. A lot people in here are not often friendly and very difficult making friends. I only know why I am here for is because, better education, communication with sign language, and better relationship with teachers. They do have very friendly teachers than students, honestly. I like here because it taught me what it look like to be with people, because I am part of deaf. If I am at hearing school then I will never know how to handle people or communication. People taught me to know how to pick right people and myself stronger.

The education and athletics are very good. It helps kids that had recently became Deaf learn sign language.
I have been the campus of Indiana School for the deaf a few times and my experiences have all been different. Some of the people are very kind but others not so much. The buildings look like prisons so that brings the overall mood down.
