Executive Director's Message

Welcome to Lexington School for the Deaf. Our team is comprised of principals, supervisors, teachers, specialists, instructional assistants, related services staff, interpreters, and office staff who are committed to the welfare and education of each one of our students.

It is the goal of the staff at Lexington to create a rich learning environment for all students.  Student success is a shared responsibility between the school staff, students, and families.

One of the unique aspects of Lexington’s curriculum is our use of Thinking Maps as a classroom teaching model. Thinking Maps are eight visual patterns that help students learn and retain information.  At Lexington, we use Thinking Maps across all subjects and grade levels to support meaningful and focused learning.

Lexington School for the Deaf is a place filled with a rich heritage, culture, and pride.  It is a school where our students learn about themselves, about the world, and about deafness.  As our students grow, our hope for them is that they enter society as educated and independent thinkers with a rich knowledge of deaf culture and a sense of self.  

With pride,

Jane Moran
