The more than a decade of success that Wolfe Street has enjoyed is founded upon three pillars. Great People, Great Programs and Great Strategies. At Wolfe we invest in and believe in our people. Whether student, family member or staff member we work tirelessly to develop skills and empower the individual to be a productive member of the whole community. Next, we make sure that we are able to provide the best programs and curriculum for those Great People to use. Our instructional curriculum is centered around a technology based Direct Instruction program, Reading Mastery Transformations, which take children from learning their letter sounds to reading novels. Every subject is fine tuned to the needs of the children so that they can learn most efficiently and advance in their development. And finally, we embrace the Community School strategy. At its core the strategy is a recognition of the impact that the interconnectedness of a community has on the health and success of that community. Community Schools assesses the hyperlocal needs of a community, the school, and works to develop partnerships and structures that address those needs. It is a flexible, everchanging strategy that develops interpersonal relationships, responds to acute crisis, and lifts up every member of the community.
Wolfe Street Academy seeks to educate all children to the highest levels, providing an experience that develops a love of learning, a respect for self and others, and the willingness to take on the responsibility for helping create a positive future for themselves and their community.
I am most proud of my school community when we succeed by persistence, patience and caring.
