Top Deaf Schools?

Just out of curiosity, how would AD members rank the top deaf schools in USA?
How about the colleges?

ALL of them offer awesome early intervention and early childhood (kindergarten and preschool) I would take an early childhood placement at a Deaf School over a mainstream school ANY DAY of the week!
Are you counting Deaf programs too? I think there are some very decent Deaf programs too.

Yes, MD School for the Deaf is one of the good Deaf Schools. Also, TLC here in MA, the California Schools, Western PA School for the Deaf, Florida School for the Deaf and Blind .
One of the best things about Deaf Schools is that although there are a lot of kids who are behind or may have intellectucal disabilty, there are usually a significent number of kids who are academic kids. As opposed to the schools for the blind, who almost all have intellectucally disabled students. (with a very small smattering of only blind kids. There are only two good blind schools sadly. Unfortunatly for some reason there's not a lot of interest in revamping blind schools or offering "sight saving" style classrooms.

Maryland School for the Deaf? Worst school I ever seen, because of many parent's control over that school, and many students' parents work in school. Too much drama and favoritisms.

No. I was talking about parental control such as parents decide whether student should be punished or not, and decide what kind of punishment student should receive after this student did something wrong in that school. I remember when there are several students were in trouble, and school decided to give this student a conclusion, and several parents showed up and fought for this student, and this kid got nothing but other students still get punished due no one speak up for other students. It's a big image of favoritism. Do you like this idea?

From my experience, the top Deaf schools would be MSD, TLC, TSD, CSDF, and FSDB.

yes lots of favorisitism in every schools as well as after school programs. Like my kids' sports activities and every parents whose are favoritisms so you have to fight for your own. But i kow MSD is a good place for deaf kids. just saying.

I'd probably add WesternPA to Shel's great list, not from personal experience but from what I've heard from others. From experience, though: TLC is an AMAZING school.

I dont know much about WesternPA. Glad to see another school added! The more good Deaf schools, the better.

I must admit CSD Riverside are improving a lot. Many deaf teachers/dorm counselors are moving in LA/Riverside from other states. They collapse old dorm buildings and already built the brand new earthquake-proof dorm buildings, and to me it is a luxury dorm with laundry unit in each building, and huge computer labs. I believe Riverside's student SAT scores will rebound anytime sooner.

I know how you feel abt Arkansas School ....and I have a friend who attended Louisana School. Although it IS in the process of being revamped. I thought Mississippi School while not being a TLC was better then a mainstream sitution. Besides, public education in Misssissippi is supposed to be REALLY bad overall.
Kansas School for the Deaf, and Oregon School for the Deaf. Not to mention, St. Rita's. Has anyone noticed that the good deaf schools are the ones that are Hoh friendly? It's hard to label them, since most Deaf Schools are "last resort" placements for kids who weren't sucessful in the mainstream. Meaning the kids might be really really smart, but they're behind due to the fact they fell through the cracks.

Posts from hell - who are you? Are you from and/or in Indiana?

ISD sucks - too many rules in the dorms (twas why I quit the dorms in my sophomore year and became a day student), too many kids harassing and framing me, etc.

They really left a terrible taste and that's why it's very highly unlikely that I'd go back to the deaf community, ever.
