Welcome Back to a New School Year!
Kendall Demonstration Elementary School (KDES) is located on the campus of Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C. Many people know about Gallaudet and its long history of offering a college education for deaf and hard of hearing students. Not everyone knows that Gallaudet grew out from the original Kendall School established by Amos Kendall on his farm in 1857! Today KDES provides educational support for deaf and hard of hearing students in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area starting with the parent-infant program all the way through eighth grade.
