Visual & Hearing Impaired Classes

Teacher: Mrs. Allie Cortese

The program for the visually impaired provides services for students who are blind or partially sighted. Students come throughout Lafayette Parish, as well as, Vermilion Parish, St. Martin Parish and Acadia Parish.

When necessary, students are taught Braille using a curriculum developed specifically for the blind. Partially sighted students utilize large print material.

Blind and partially sighted students are mainstreamed into regular classes. The teachers of the visually impaired make the necessary modifications needed to compensate for their loss of vision.

Gifted Education

We are one of the two elementary schools that house our academically gifted students. Teachers incorporate enrichment into their curriculums and students learn standards one grade above in ELA and math.
