Character Counts Logo

CHARACTER COUNTS! strengthens students through character education. A person of character is a good person, someone to look up to and admire, who knows the difference between right and wrong and always tries to do what is right. A person with character sets a good example for everyone and makes the world a better place while living according to the “Six Pillars of Character”: TRUSTWORTHINESS, RESPECT, RESPONSBILITY, FAIRNESS, CARING and CITIZENSHIP.

Student Listening

AUDITORY AND SPEECH SUPPORT

What is sound? How do sound waves travel? What do different noises sound like? For many of our Deaf students, sound is an abstract concept that has been difficult to understand, until now. With the installation of the “Multisensory Sound Lab”, a new understanding and experience of sound is possible. In the lab, sound is not just perceived through your ears, but through your whole body.
