Our school is a secondary boarding school for pupils with hearing impairment. It was established in 1947. For almost 65 years young hearing impaired people (from 15 to 26) from all over Slovakia have been attending our school. In the last years also pupils with another disabilities, who require individual approach and slower advancement in education, have been coming to our school.

Our main goal is to behave and educate our pupils well. We are trying to:

  • improve their vocabulary (in Slovak language, Slovak Sign language and English language),
  • highlight our school and the community of hearing impaired people in Slovakia,
  • increase the level of IT skills,
  • provide high quality education in all our courses

Except the speech therapy there is a special subject called “communication skills“ in our curriculum which is focused on teaching correct pronunciation, developing of logical thinking and communication.

After school, there is a wide range of extracurricular activities for all our pupils, for example: computing, sport, art and drama club, the school magazine and reading comprehension.

During the school year we attend various events and competitions (school competitions, national or international). Our school also provides different courses: weldering course, skiing course, swimming course, rafting, social-rehabilitation course.

We closely cooperate with other schools for pupils with hearing impairment, mainstream secondary schools, state institutions, private companies and organizations of people with hearing impairment. We participate in different projects on the national as well as on the international level.
