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.
