ASD Middle School!
The Arkansas School for the Deaf Middle School program consists of grades 6-8. Middle school classroom content follows the Arkansas State Standards. We have adopted textbooks that follow these standards and meet the learning styles of individual students. An Individual Education Plan (IEP) is developed for each student.
Our students’ academic day focuses on reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. It utilizes technology, especially the computer, as a productive tool. Students rotate through enrichment classes including art and physical education on a quarterly basis; 7 & 8 grade students attend vocational classes per semester. We offer a visual, hands-on approach to education, and our classrooms are full of active learning.
We recognize that middle school is a crucial stage in a student’s development. Students are faced with emotional, social, cultural, physical and intellectual challenges during middle school years. Our program offers students a warm, diverse, and well organized environment that emphasizes equal educational opportunities, exploration, guidance, differentiation, and socialization in addition to comprehensive academics.
The Middle School offers a full range of athletic opportunities for students, including football, volleyball, basketball, cheerleading, soccer and track and field. Recreational and educational activities are also provided for residential students through the Campus Life division.
Our Middle School team joins parents and the communities in assisting our students to develop academic skills and character that will help them become good citizens who will succeed and contribute responsibly in a global community.
