|Northland High School serves a large general population of students as well as high school level students in the Columbus Hearing Impaired Program. Total communication is the mode of teaching all students with special emphasis on oral/aural skills. Self contained classrooms are available to students who are deaf or hard-of-hearing in grades 9-12. Students have the opportunity to participate with hearing peers in all aspects of the school experience that are appropriate.
Students served by CHIP have an Individualized Education Plan based upon current levels of performance. When mainstreaming into the general population is called for, educational interpreters are available for sign language support. CHIP students at Northland also have the choice to attend a wide variety of career training programs from the Columbus Public Schools' career centers.
CHIP students and staff benefit from a cooperative and supportive relationship with Northland staff and students.
