Life and Career Skills
No matter a child’s age upon enrollment, VSDB lays the foundation for lifelong independence and success. Students can access our unique services and programs from birth until “aging out” of Special Education Services at 21.
VSDB’s faculty and staff are simply the best — highly qualified and caring, they dedicate their careers to teaching students with hearing and vision impairments. They have the expertise and the passion to make the difference for your child.
Interactive, experiential learning builds skills, knowledge, and confidence that translate into lifelong success — in post-secondary education, in the workforce, and in their communities.
Community of Peers
At VSDB, students are “one of many” instead of being the “only one” … often for the first time.
Engaged Student Life
Fun can be beneficial! Participation in athletics, social events, and extracurricular activities extend capabilities and enrich daily experience. Weekends at home allow family time, too.

Trisha Thompson, Parent
"I have nothing but good things to say about this school…(my son) has made a complete 180 change with his attitude, socially, and with academics. The staff here is great, phenomenal, they really, really love and embrace and bring you in as a family."
Darren Maxwell, Parent
"Joining VSDB was a definite plus for [my son]. Two thumbs up!"
Anthony Velasco, Parent
“This school is the best for deaf children because of the education and the direct communication in American Sign Language with peers and teachers. I don’t have to have an interpreter with me all day…at VSDB, we are all equal, the same. VSDB is the best school I’ve ever attended!”
Danyeal, VSDB Student
