Philippine School for the Deaf, formerly known as the School for the Deaf and Blind, is the pioneer school for the Deaf. PSD started in 1907 when Dr. David P. Barrows, the Director of Education then, invited to the country, Ms. Delight Rice.
With the present goals of the Department of Education (DepEd), PSD modified its curricular offerings to address the changing trend in education. PSD adheres to the philosophy of Total Communication (TotalCom) using English as the language of instruction and Simultaneous Communication (SimCom) as the mode. PSD uses theModified K+12 Basic Education Curriculum (Modified K+12) from Kindergarten to Grade 12 with special learning areas — Language, Speech, Speechreading, Rhythm and Auditory Training, increased time allotment for Communication Arts and introduction of Filipino in Grade III.
We dream of Filipinos who passionately love their country and whose competencies and values enable them to realize their full potential and contribute meaningfully to building the nation. As a learner-centered public institution, the Department of Education continuously improve itself to better serve its stakeholders.
With a team of highly professional Special Education teachers, trained locally and abroad, PSD is presently managed by Ms. MA. JESSICA S. MAGAYANES, Public Schools District Supervisor, Officer-In-Charge, under the administration of the DepEd Pasay City Schools Division and DepEd-National Capital Region.
