Academic- new school entrance
Student Life
  • Academics
    Academic programs are based on Ohio's Model Curriculum and the New State Standards in each of the core content areas. Through the IEP process, we strive to craft and implement an educational program designed to foster and develop each child's educational needs. OSD endorses a bilingual bi-cultural environment throughout the School. Each individual's communication rights and needs are recognized and respected.
  • The new school building opened in August 2013 and is designed to maximize the academic abilities of all deaf and hard-of-hearing students.
  • Student Life
    The Student Life at OSD promotes individual student's transition to the maximum potential through education, empowerment, and communication. Our motto is to enrich the social physical, intellectual, communication, emotional, and spiritual aspects in our students' lives. By balancing all of these essential aspects, our goal is to encourage students to lead well-rounded lives following graduation.
  • The importance of athletics is recognized through a variety of sports at OSD. We believe that a balanced education includes a strong athletic program to allow students to expand upon their individual interests and talents. OSD students have the opportunity to travel to surrounding states for competition against their deaf peers as well as hearing peers. Involvement in sports fosters a sense of self-pride and accomplishment, while at the same time allows students to form strong bonds with others.
    All Teachers and Students come together to show OSD PRIDE!
