Welcome to the New York State School for the Blind

The Mission of The School ...

    Our mission, through day and integrated residential programming in a safe and nurturing environment, is to provide a foundation of learning to enable each student to become a contributing member in a diverse society, to achieve their highest level of independence and to afford them the ability to live in a least restrictive environment. NYSSB will do this by providing excellence in education and in residential programming, and by promoting a learning environment that puts achievement and independence within reach of each student. Learn more About Us.


The NYSSB Outreach Weekend Program For Students 9-11 Years Old that was scheduled for March 6-8, 2015 has been cancelled.

A new Outreach Weekend Program for Students 10-13 Years Old is being planned for May 15-17.
