Did you go to Deaf school or Mainstream school or both?

Posted by chillygurlz on August 28, 2008

Hello all…  I wonder, when you were growing up, did u go to mainstream public school or deaf school or both?  please leave a comment…  I grew up in mainstream public school, i went to Prescott Elementary school with other deaf kids and had very good program for the deaf, from preschool up to 6th grade then went to public middle school for my 7th grade.  I finally went to Nebraska school for the deaf in 8th grade and 9th grade.  I went to Iowa school for the deaf in 9th to 11th grade.  I repeated 9th grade.  then for my senior year i moved to Oregon, went to Grants Pass High school and graduated, yes there was deaf programs with interpreter at the school.  I enjoyed going to deaf schools the most cuz i was able to interact with deaf students and be part of deaf culture.
