Academic- new school entrance
Student Life
  • Academics
    Academic programs are based on Ohio's Model Curriculum and the New State Standards in each of the core content areas. Through the IEP process, we strive to craft and implement an educational program designed to foster and develop each child's educational needs. OSD endorses a bilingual bi-cultural environment throughout the School. Each individual's communication rights and needs are recognized and respected.
  • The new school building opened in August 2013 and is designed to maximize the academic abilities of all deaf and hard-of-hearing students.
  • Student Life
    The Student Life at OSD promotes individual student's transition to the maximum potential through education, empowerment, and communication. Our motto is to enrich the social physical, intellectual, communication, emotional, and spiritual aspects in our students' lives. By balancing all of these essential aspects, our goal is to encourage students to lead well-rounded lives following graduation.
  • The importance of athletics is recognized through a variety of sports at OSD. We believe that a balanced education includes a strong athletic program to allow students to expand upon their individual interests and talents. OSD students have the opportunity to travel to surrounding states for competition against their deaf peers as well as hearing peers. Involvement in sports fosters a sense of self-pride and accomplishment, while at the same time allows students to form strong bonds with others.
    All Teachers and Students come together to show OSD PRIDE!

Message from Dr. Lou

Hello Everyone,

It has been a great first week for me at the Ohio School for the Deaf. Although, many people are on vacation, I have had the opportunity to visit with staff members busy working to make the school ready for the fall. I have ventured out around this beautiful campus as well. My family and I found a place to live close to the school and we are getting to know Columbus and the surrounding areas as well. Please enjoy the rest of your summer and I look forward to working with you this school year.

Who We Are

The Ohio School for the Deaf thrives on its rich history and the belief that every student will achieve every day. The spirit and liveliness are infectious as staff greet children each day, from youngsters enrolled in the Alice Cogswell Center and the Early Learning Center preschool to the post-high school students who have elected to participate in the 4Plus transition program. The children and teachers in every classroom, laboratory and common space are ready, willing and waiting to learn.
