Atlanta Area School for the Deaf

Excellence Everyday.... That's the Panther Way!

Welcome to Elementary School

  • Elementary School Group

    AASD's Preschool and Pre-K programs serve Deaf and Hard of Hearing children in Georgia. We follow the school’s Bilingual language policy, and use both Spoken English and ASL in the classroom, matching each student’s individual language preferences. We provide a language rich environment where children can learn naturally through play, stories, and hands-on activities. Our classes follow Bright from the Start and Georgia Early Learning Development Standards, ensuring that our students have equal opportunities to establish strong educational foundations. Our small class sizes and great teachers and paraprofessionals ensure that each child receives the most possible individualized attention. As a result, we build meaningful and long lasting relationships with each of our students and their families. Parent communication and collaboration is of the utmost importance to us, especially where our youngest children are concerned.
