From Lara Johnson, Board Member, Baltimore Design School:
The Baltimore Design School will serve as a national model for design-integrated learning. At this innovative school within the Baltimore City Public School System, design and creative problem-solving pervades and informs all aspects of a rigorous academic curriculum. The combined middle and high school is located in the Station North Arts District in a former 110,000-SF clothing factory that has been transformed into a state-of -the-art facility for architectural design, fashion design and graphic design.
BDS is incorporated as a non-profit organization with an independent board of directors. Leveraging a strong public-private partnership has helped provide the school with a great new facility. However, the board is currently seeking funds to close a budget deficit for many of the operational and capital expenses not met by the school system.
