Welcome to Iowa School for the deaf

Iowa School for the Deaf is not just a ‘special’ school. It is an extraordinary language and learning environment for children who sign, talk or use both communication methods. We welcome children who have cochlear implants, hearing aids, or who use no assistive hearing devices. We value our students’ strengths and design individual learning goals centered around each student’s unique needs.

In the right environment, amazing progress is made. Small successes occur every day, becoming large accomplishments every year. We invite you to explore our website and learn how our students thrive in a language-based academic and social environment.
