Deaf Culture

At LAVOSI, the school environment is much different from their home. There are many hands moving around, laughter unheard, but seen afar. Younger to older, signing and playing together like nowhere else can tell them to not sign. The vibes feel free around the school with no boundaries. At LAVOSI, they strive to be themselves, learn about being Deaf and the culture forming around them. Signing, stomping the floor or flashing the lights, laughing aloud, exchanging information about job opportunities, and get together after school are all parts of their Deaf culture.
