i actually was into my first pre-school is Harvard Elemetary for a few months later...then quitted it 'cause there is no deaf program 4 me in one year later[1996], i finally was attended into View Ridge Elem. when i was into a first grade after into kindergarten in during spring time..It's stupid to be explainable this...that's what I hate but i will summarzie this as such as simply

Simply 2 tell u this..
1995-1995 fall= Harvard Pre-school
1996-2000= View Ridge Elem[a mainstream school]in a public seattle school
2000-current= Washington School 4 the Deaf[a mainstream school] in vancouver, washington
If I quitted this deaf school, attend a public seattle school which named is Roosevelt High School for awhile till my parents decide if they can't decide then I can choose those school whatever i want.

then probably change my future--

2004-2006= lincoln high school
2006-2008= roosevelt high school

if obvisouly, it doesnt change..then it would be--

2004-2008= washington school for the deaf!!!!!!! FOREVER! DEAF PRIDE LOL!

imasillymonkei, O/T I know, but something that could help you decide where to attend school is look at what you want to do for the future. If you're not too interested in attending college but want a job right off the bat, a Deaf school might be better for you as they may have vocational training oppertunties not really offered at mainstream schools. The trouble with mainstream secondary ed is that nowadays it's mostly geared for the suburban achiever who plans to go off to college, and a lot of those suburban achivers may be "educated" but many of them are "educated idoits" with no real marketable skills. Even if you're interested in going off to college, you could still go to a community college right out of Deaf school and then if you did really well you could continue your education somewhere else.
Also, ask around and see what the real life manifesations of the D/hh/sped support programs are like. If the sped programs/support services are really not that great (ie the teachers are all "Oh everyone in this program is just going to get on disabilty and not do anything with their lives) and the support services are very minimal, you'd probaly be better off at a deaf school. Everyone raves about how wonderful the academic quality of mainstream ed is, but in order to get really good quality support programs you pratically have to be a battleax!

I think it's b/c you mentioned that you're a mom. Nowadays people tend to get married mid-twenties and have kids in their early thirties. I see you took a few more years graduating then I did, even thou I am only a year or two older then you (turning 25 in Sept) Did you graduate at 21? I see you graduated from Clarke the year before I graduated high school. Do you still know anyone at Clarke? I go there for audilogy and am thinking of volunteering to be a mentor in the fall.

Color, a lot of dhh kids stay in school until they are older....don't feel bad.
Where's International Deaf Bible College? Did you choose to go to the reglious schools or did you come from a really reglious family?

At age 11 to 19, I went to private school..

International Deaf Bible College locates in Mpls, Minnesota..but I heard that the name of this college has changed into different name.

I was raised in Christian home...they are wonderful family! :)
