Abstract: This study attempts to investigate the status of academic achievement of Deaf pupils with particular reference to Alpha Special School for the Deaf and Yekatit-23 primary school. Non- experiment comparative study design was used to examine the academic achievement that scored by the Deaf pupils in special and regular schools with their first semester roster score and teacher-made tests result. The empirical data was based mainly on classroom tests and first semester score of the academic year. To achieve the purpose of the study, 98 grades 5, 6, 7, and 8 pupils with hearing impairment and 24 teachers a total of 122 participants, were included in the study. In the study included different instruments to collect the relevant data. The findings of the study show that special school Deaf students have better academic achievement than regular school Deaf students. Particularly in Amharic, English, and Mathematics subjects the special school Deaf students classroom tests result is better than regular school Deaf students classroom tests result. In addition, the Alpha special school for the Deaf school facility that has influence on academic achievement of Deaf students is better than Yekatit-23 primary school facility. Hence, the result suggests that regular school is unfavorable for Deaf students’ academic achievement; and in regular school Deaf students’ academic achievement is unsatisfactory. Further research is also required to examine the factors that affect the Deaf students’ academic achievement.
