Pennsylvania School for the Deaf

Our Mission

Middle School

Middle school is where students begin to transition to different classrooms for core academic learning.

The adjustment to working with a variety of teachers helps increase and support work habits to prepare students for high school and beyond.

These years of consistency, high expectations, and empowerment are the key for our Middle School students to achieve both personally and academically.

In addition, our strong staff meets the needs of our students and empowers them to make positive choices in their lives.
