At the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind, students learn to do more, be more, and achieve more, fulfilling our vision of preparing them for a lifetime of success.
Welcome to the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind!
FSDB is nationally recognized as a trusted resource for the education of students who are deaf or hard of hearing, blind or visually impaired or deafblind. Our campus, located in the heart of historic St. Augustine, features a parent-infant/family programs as well as a Montessori-based pre-K, and five K-12 schools including access to virtual classes and postgraduate opportunities.
What truly sets FSDB apart from other schools is our highly qualified teachers, specialists and staff members, small class sizes, advanced technologies, specialized professional services, and much more. Academic programs at FSDB are based on the Florida Standards, and students work toward attainment of standard diplomas. In a typical academic year, career and technical education courses are offered both on campus and through partnerships with postsecondary schools and businesses. Students also participate in various extracurricular, performing arts, and recreational activities, including academic and athletic competitions in Florida and across the country (again, sans a pandemic). FSDB offers a safe and comfortable learning environment for students to do more, be more and achieve more, as they develop the knowledge and skills for lifelong success.
On behalf of our FSDB faculty and staff members, I extend our warm welcome to prospective, new and returning students and their families.
