Student Life

Halloween Dance 2011
Students coming to KSSB find many new doors of opportunity to step through. Any student wanting to participate can join a competitive sports team, hone speaking skills on our championship forensics team, develop artistic expression in an Accessible Arts class, and participate in community-based instruction.

Students enjoy many after-school activities on our beautiful ten-acre campus and around the metropolitan area. Our student residence building is a warm and wonderful home away from home for students residing on campus. All students attending KSSB have ample opportunities to develop independence in the Skills of Daily Living.

While free time to just be a kid is part of what KSSB does everyday, KSSB takes a fairly structured approach to maximize the learning of each student according to their needs.

  • Our new Learning for Life Program helps prepare students for the transition to adulthood.  Students develop skills and progress through the stages of independent function with whatever supports students need.
  • Students have access to an indoor swimming pool, an outdoor track, a fully equipped gymnasium, and a playground.
  • A full range of Assistive Technology designed for visual impairments is available to each student.
  • A fully chartered student bank to teach financial skills helps students learn to manage money.
  • Specialized licensed mental health professionals on staff to help students develop a positive self-image.
