Activities from a typical day at The Texas School for the Deaf are captured in this film. Footage includes students in the classroom, playing basketball, and in their dormitory.

Located in Austin, the Texas School for the Deaf is both a statewide and national leader in deaf education. The school first opened its doors in 1857 with only four male students. In 2009, the school housed over 500 students on campus, with many others in summer and short programs. TSD also offers outreach programs to families of deaf students outside the Austin area.
