Our mission is to provide a nurturing environment that stimulates cognitive, social and emotional development and to equip our children with the listening and English language skills and self-confidence they need to succeed in schools with their hearing peers.Clarke Jacksonville News and Events
Welcome from the Director
Welcome to Clarke Jacksonville! Parents who choose Clarke Jacksonville Auditory/Oral Center have made a very important decision; one that will affect their child's outlook, adjustment and future success in and out of school. Clarke Jacksonville uses the auditory/oral approach to prepare deaf students, ages 0 to 7, for eventual transition into public and/or private schools with their hearing peers. At Clarke, parents will find a unique learning environment designed to maximize deaf children's auditory/oral language skills. We help each child to develop a foundation made up of confidence, love, sense of self-worth and pride. The end result will be a child who meets the world head on saying," I can do it!, I am special!"
As the director since the School's founding in 1996, my staff and I are committed to providing the best learning atmosphere for deaf children. We share in parents' commitment to provide children with the best preschool/kindergarten and early primary education. We focus on the whole child. As we strive jointly to carry out this important mission, may the spirit of mutual cooperation, support and encouragement lead to a wonderful and successful experience at Clarke Jacksonville.
