A Message From The Superintendent ...




Dear St. Mary’s School for the Deaf Stakeholders:


Happy New Year!  Our staff and students returned to school from the winter break refreshed and ready to work as a team to achieve all student goals across all settings.  Our highly qualified staff is committed to providing innovative programs that enable our best resources, our students, to reach their full potential before, during, and after school. 


Thank you to the PTO for sponsoring the Winter Wonderland.  The PTO made sure each of our students and staff received a gift.  Our PTO is a Child First organization.

St. Mary’s School for the Deaf continues to work with the New York State Education Department and legislative leaders to be part of the solution for the state.  SMSD partners with many community organizations and is a valuable resource to Western New York.  We are committed to our Belief Statement and our Missions Statement.  We remain student-focused and student-centered in our approach to Deaf Education.


Our doors are always open and we welcome visitors to come and see what a special place our campus is.  If you would like to tour our school, please feel free to contact us for an appointment.


Best wishes for a happy, healthy, and successful 2017!


Child First!
