MSSD hosts spring Open House events
MSSD Open House
March 1 and April 19, 2013
At the Model Secondary School for the Deaf (MSSD) Open House, prospective students and their families have the opportunity to come and experience the fully accessible environment MSSD offers to deaf and hard of hearing students. During the Open House, families will have an opportunity to learn about all facets of life at MSSD--academics, after-school activities, and dorm life.
Each prospective student will be paired with a MSSD student "buddy" and gain an in-depth understanding of MSSD as he or she shadows his or her buddy, attends classes with him or her, and shares lunch.
