ASL proficiency required

Marie Philip School (MPS) our Pre-K -12+ day school, enrolls nearly 200 deaf and hard of hearing students on our Framingham campus. We are proud of our history as the first school in the United States to have adopted the ASL/English bilingual, bicultural model in a K-12 educational setting. MPS offers a full range of academics, including Honors and Advanced Placement courses, along with vocational training courses as well as intensive classes for students who have learning disabilities or developmental disabilities.

Walden School (WS) is a nationally-recognized residential therapeutic and education program for deaf children and youth ages 8 to 22. Walden School students have often experienced significant adverse childhood events, as well as language deprivation, resulting in mental health challenges, and have treatment needs that have not been successfully addressed in other academic and residential settings. Working with a staff that is proficient in American Sign Language (over 75% of whom are Deaf), Walden students receive highly individualized, trauma-informed care and therapy in a structured, supportive, home-like setting. Students attend classes during the day in contained classes with curriculum modified to each individual need, and have the opportunity to participate in a range of activities on campus.


This School Psychologist will serve primarily middle and high school students at the Marie Philip School in addition to participating in the reevaluation process for Walden School students. Marie Philip School is an ASL/English bilingual, bicultural school in a PreK-12 educational setting with nearly 200 students. Walden School is a nationally-recognized residential therapeutic and education program for deaf children and youth ages 8 to 22 on the same campus as Marie Philip School.
