Lois T. Murray Elementary Middle School opened its doors for the first time in 1979. The school was built to serve children with severe cognitive disabilities and hearing impairments, therefore it was fitting to name the school in memory of Lois Taylor Murray, a pioneer in the education and training of children with disabilities.

Ms. Murray gave 40 years of service to the exceptional children of Baltimore City Public Schools and possessed unique skills in developing and implementing new instructional procedures. Under her direct supervision several curriculum guides and teacher handbooks were developed. She was responsible for much of the significant teacher growth in the field of special education in Baltimore City.

Lois T. Murray School represents the tomorrow Lois Taylor Murray saw yesterday. Her name is synonymous with a desire for achievement, devotion to service, and an enthusiasm and love for exceptional children.
