Every donation will be used to support the PK-12 educational programs at Metro Deaf School.

Metro Deaf School (MDS), a charter PK-12 school, provides a bilingual and interdisciplinary curriculum using American Sign Language (ASL) and English for students who are primarily deaf and hard-of-hearing.

MDS is one of the nation's very first charter schools, established in 1992, and the first to serve deaf and hard-of-hearing students in a setting that empowers their students to develop the skills and knowledge to succeed as global citizens. MDS is authorized by Volunteers of America Minnesota.

MDS students enjoy learning in an environment with peers who share the same language, ASL. Students are educated through a “regular education” curriculum comparable to that of any hearing school. Unique learners have the curriculum modified to ensure success. A rigorous curriculum well prepares MDS graduates for college and beyond. MDS boasts a 100% graduation rate with 92% of its students continuing on into post-secondary institutions.

MDS serves students from the metro area and western Wisconsin. Early education is imperative to a student’s success. MDS’ early childhood special education program begins at age 2.6 yrs. MDS offers sign language classes for families, family education nights, an extensive extra-curricular program for all ages of students, mainstreaming opportunities at a neighboring high school as well as transition classes for high school students who need a more solid foundation prior to graduation.
