A little information about us:
The mission of the Delaware School for the Deaf, a program serving Deaf and hard of hearing students K -21 years of age, is to educate students with rigorous achievement standards, to develop their linguistic competence in both ASL and English, and to prepare them to be contributing citizens, by providing access to language and information in a safe and supportive learning environment.

Our history:   
Delaware School for the Deaf began serving students in 1929 in Wilmington, Delaware. The founder, Margaret S. Sterck, decided to become a teacher for deaf children in her own home on Van Buren Street. Sterck taught there until 1945, when state regulations forced all deaf children to be taught in schools. Some were transferred to specialized deaf programs in schools across Delaware while others went to Pennsylvania School for the Deaf (PSD) in Philadelphia.

In 1960, space restrictions forced PSD to bar additional deaf children from Delaware from enrolling. Parents of deaf children expressing concern led the Delaware State Board of Education to initiate plans for building a school for the deaf within the state. Funding and planning took place from 1960 to 1968. Construction was completed in 1968 and the school was open in 1969. The building was named in honor of Margaret S. Sterck, The Margaret Sterck School for the Hearing Impaired.
