AASD’s Kindergarten to Fifth grade programs serve Deaf and Hard of Hearing students from all over Georgia. We follow the school’s bilingual language policy and use Written English, Spoken English, and ASL in the classroom, striving to match each student’s language preferences. Our classrooms consist of a language-rich environment where students learn through hands-on activities, group work, and 1:1 with the teachers. Our classes follow the Georgia Standards of Excellence, which ensures our students have equal opportunities to establish and maintain strong educational foundations. By having small class sizes, GaPSC certified teachers, and highly qualified paraprofessionals, we ensure our students receive the most individualized attention and appropriate services based on each student’s IEP. We build meaningful and long-lasting relationships with each of our students and their families. Family engagement and communication is important to us, bridging the connection between school and home to provide a solid foundation to where our students can become successful in school and at home.
