Metro Deaf School, is a bilingual charter school, serving PK-12th grade in the Twin Cities area and western Wisconsin. Bilingual education is learning about general information through the use of two languages. They are equally valued, used, taught, and learned. At Metro Deaf School (MDS), all students are instructed in American Sign Language (ASL) and English is taught through print. MDS has a challenging interdisciplinary curriculum that incorporates Minnesota’s Academic Standards. Accommodations and modifications are made to the curriculum based on each student’s IEP. In addition, bilingual education is a core value that leads to higher literacy levels.
Metro Deaf School promotes academic excellence for Deaf and Hard of Hearing students using an ASL/English bilingual approach. Our primary purpose is to empower our students to develop the skills and knowledge to succeed as global citizens.
