Small by Design
Public School #23, now Wolfe Street Academy, has served the Southeast Baltimore community since 1852, when the school first opened as a traditional public school. When Principal Gaither arrived in 2005, he and the teachers and families successfully pushed for community school status with Baltimore City Public Schools. Two years later, Wolfe Street Academy joined the Baltimore Curriculum Project’s network of public neighborhood conversion charter schools. Because we are intentionally small, we can best serve each student and family. It also means we really know each family and can work with our community partners to meet your family’s unique needs.
