DHH logo

The QEHS DHH program logo is very unique and special. It was designed by students with input from students, staff, parents, and the community. It symbolizes who we are, how we are, and why we are.
It shows that we are:

  • A unique deaf and hard of hearing program and community that is integrated within the QEHS whole community;
  • A community which embraces American sign language, English, and any signed, spoken, and/or written language as equal and valuable options for communication;
  • A community which embraces individuals who are diverse in their preferences for and/or use a variety of langauges, cultures, technologies, and personal identities;
  • A community that has shared pride, respect, openness, transparency, and determination to create something that is better than it has ever been before.

Queen Elizabeth High School Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program Description

Programming options include communication and instruction through American Sign Language, spoken/written English, or sign supported speech based on student needs. The primary program goal is to optimize students’ academic achievement, communication abilities, and personal development. Students in this program may have hearing aids and/or cochlear implants and have the option to use personal FM systems. A combination of congregated DHH, co-enrolment, and/or integrated environments is available. Students may participate in bi-cultural learning experiences through educational opportunities and activities in the congregated classrooms and throughout the school.  The students attending the elementary DHH Programs may feed into the DHH Program at Queen Elizabeth Junior/High.
