About Tucker Maxon Co-Enrollment

Tucker Maxon is a unique school where deaf/hard-of-hearing (DHH) and typical hearing children learn together. These two groups learn from each other. Moreover, learning alongside students who are deaf and hard of hearing, our typical hearing students learn to value differences and become strong communicators. Unquestionably, learning and playing alongside their typically-hearing peers, our deaf and hard of hearing students learn to listen and talk from their friends. Together, these two groups grow, learn, and achieve academic excellence.


Tucker Maxon is an auditory-verbal school. This is another way of saying we teach students listening and spoken language. We respect all forms of communication and a parent’s right to choose what is best for their child. Sign language (ASL) is taught in an after school club and a playgroup.

The school creates a language-rich environment with many opportunities for open-ended discussion and critical thinking. At TMS we believe vocabulary, abstract language, and question comprehension are critical to a child’s success in school. As such, these ideas occupy a prominent place in our curriculum. Furthermore, we respond to each child’s individual needs with small class sizes and a dynamic, collaborative teaching approach. This lays the groundwork for a lifelong love of learning, and social and emotional intelligence.

Students who need extra help receive it; those who are ahead are challenged appropriately. Every student is known and valued.
