Superintendent's Message

Welcome Rocky Mountain Deaf School website!  This is a place where we share our school’s programs and services.  I am delighted to invite you to explore our website.

What sets RMDS apart from other schools and programs is our dedication to our students.  Our staff members who all are highly qualified work tirelessly to provide academic, career and extracurricular opportunities for our students.  It is RMDS’s goal to provide our students the foundation by which students can continue to gain greater knowledge and skills to become a great citizen after they leave RMDS.  In this place, students feel inspired to think, to learn, to achieve and to care.

I hope you learn more about RMDS and visit our site often for updates.  Come for a visit and tour our new school building.

RMDSly  yours,  Amy J Novotny,  Director
