The William S. Baer School

For over 75 years The Baer School, a Baltimore City Public School, has served children with multiple disabilities from all over Baltimore city. Through the years, the Baer School has seen significant changes in its population. The children have become increasingly more dependent on medical technology, more medically fragile and economically deprived.

The Mission of the William S. Baer School, in constant collaboration with families, community, the Partnership Board, Baltimore City Schools, and the State of Maryland is to work as a Team to support students in meeting their individual needs in the areas of socialization, functional living skills, academic standards, and pre-vocational training by utilizing the Maryland Common Core Academic Standards, the Individualized Educational Plan, Parent Input, and Therapeutic Management Plans while continuing to promote independence in all areas for every student.
