The Philippine School for the Deaf

Somewhere along F. B Harrison is one old legacy of the Americans. It was established a year early than the University of the Philippines. The structure is covered by large trees but a peek through the iron gates gives you a view of a simple and yet interesting school.  

The building survived World War II and many typhoons. My professor and principal of the school Mrs. Yolanda Capulong said its nice to have big trees but after the storms its a big problem.

Being an old place it is again said to be haunted with ghosts. I am not sure of the ghosts use sign language as well. The school is well maintained despite being made mostly of wood.

Located inside the premises is the Philippine Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (PRID) and they give courses on sign language.
