Texas School for the Deaf Reviews

It's an amazing diverse school that allows deaf people to socialize and find others like them as well as teach them about deaf culture and the real world cultural difference. While it could work on college preparation, it provides a huge amount of ways to get started in college such as a partnership with Austin Community College that allows deaf kids to take dual credit college classes.
TSD is very sport focused as well, many kids love playing football and basketball and the kids dedicate their time to these sports as well as keep their grades up. TSD can be very inclusive and they have many different people to socialize with and its easy to find your crowd.
They offer a bunch of classes like robotics, graphic design and art and many others to give kids an idea of what they like and dont like.

I've grew up here since I'm 16 months old which includes Parent Infant Program. This school is like my 2nd home. My community and there's no barriers in this school. As a deaf student, everything in this school are very remarkable. They made who I am right now. I play sports here and able to succeed my skills and my social skills too. This school is my 2nd home without any question. But there's one thing I wish about this school is more students. We have around 600 students k-12 yet I wanted more, I believe every deaf student should go to this school and have a amazing growth experience here.
A wonderful school for Deaf individuals. The environment is very engaging to individuals who are Deaf. It can help them grow and become passionate and knowledgeable. As a graduate of that school, they helped me immensely by offering advice for getting into college and they offered tons of support.
