Rush Medical Center has been a huge supporter and sponsor for our school. Located right down the street from us, Rush has collaborated with us on multiple projects and partnerships between all three of our programs. Especially our Deaf and Hard of Hearing program.
We are also thankful to Rush who donated the Rush Science Lab to the school as a way for students from grades 3rd through 8th grade to have lab days and work outside of the regular classroom setting.
