Description: Tucker-Maxon began in 1947 as a school where children with hearing loss learned to talk. Today we educate children with typical hearing and children with hearing loss together in small, collaborative classes. Our students who are deaf do not use sign language. Instead, with the help of digital hearing aids, cochlear implants, early diagnosis, and early intervention, our students who are deaf learn to speak and listen very well! Our students with typical hearing benefit from our highly-qualified teachers, low student-teacher ratios, and an environment where individual attention is the norm. All our students learn to value differences, believe in social justice, and to respect themselves and each other.
