Adobe donates computers outfitted with Creative Suite to Baltimore Design School

It's Adobe's "first such partnership with a single school -- they usually partner with entire school districts."

Although it was founded a few years ago, the Baltimore Design School opened its doors this fall after an architectural rehabilitation of the old Lebow Building in Station North that cost more than $26 million.

In addition to the usual classes in mathematics and social studies, middle school students at the Baltimore Design School take courses in architecture, graphic design and fashion before picking a specialization to focus on in high school. (The school currently has grades 6 to 9 and 350 students.)

As an article on FastCo.Design describes, the building features 17-foot-high ceilings and a “lab of computers with the full Adobe Creative Suite”:

Adobe Youth Voices, the software company‚Äôs philanthropic arm, donated a lab of computers with the full Adobe Creative Suite and, in January, will train teachers on incorporating student-driven media into their instruction. This is Adobe’s first such partnership with a single school — they usually partner with entire school districts — but the unique nature of BDS and its design-focused curriculum inspired the grant.
