For over 75 years the William S. Baer school, a Baltimore City Public School, has served children with multiple disabilities from all over Baltimore city. Over time, the school’s population has changed. Today, the Baer school’s children are more dependent on medical technology, more medically fragile, and more economically disadvantaged than ever before.
A Special Place for Special Children
The William S. Baer School Partnership Board was established in 1994 and is a separate 501© 3 non-profit organization whose membership consists of community leaders, educators, and businesspeople. The mission of the Board is to raise additional funds to support the special needs of our students, and to secure volunteers for the school. All money raised by the Partnership Board goes directly to meeting the therapeutic needs of the children. Since 1994, the board has raised millions in private funding for the Baer children.

“My garden club created and planted the butterfly garden with the children. The experience opened up a lot of hearts.”
