MSLS brings together hearing, deaf, and hard of hearing children in a supportive environment. In addition to a regular elementary curriculum, all students receive instruction in American Sign Language. A bilingual, bicultural climate exists throughout our program. Our citywide program is available only to children who are deaf or hard of hearing and their siblings. We have been chosen as one of ten MPS GE Foundation Demonstration Schools, an honor that provides the school with additional teacher support in literacy, math and cultural competency. This support will improve student achievement through innovative and stronger implementation of the rigorous Common Core State Standards.
