The mission of the Rocky Mountain Deaf School is to provide Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing children, preschool through 12th grade, a publicly-funded bilingual education which promotes academic excellence, full proficiency in ASL and English literacy, and which supports the home-school connection by offering a language rich environment that includes the RMDS personnel, the RMDS Board, parents, and the Deaf community.
To inspire every deaf student to think, to learn, to achieve, to care.
Rocky Mountain Deaf School is founded on the belief that deaf children can and should succeed. The driving force behind the school is a theme of excellence in research-based academic programs. In this intellectually stimulating environment, communication is totally accessible throughout the day from every person in the child’s environment. Each student’s potential is maximized as teachers continue to instill in each child the joy of living and learning.
Through strong collaboration with parents, the deaf community, the educational research community, the school community, and the business community, we are a model of best practices and an exemplary resource in the field of Deaf Education both nationally and internationally.
Family atmosphere. We create a welcoming and intimate environment where students, parents, and educators feel comfortable and can work productively together through respectful open communication.
Exceptional teamwork. We work collaboratively and inclusively to help each other succeed and to ensure that our collective efforts result in more than what we could accomplish individually.
Continuous innovation. We seek out and find creative new ways to be more effective in everything that we do, including thinking outside of the box.
Zest. We maintain high motivation to be the best.
