All children can learn if they are taught well. Direct Instruction, our research-driven curriculum, lets students learn at their own pace. We place them in groups based on individual needs for more help and more enrichment. Data generated by frequent assessments allows students to move into different groups as they become more confident readers.
Weekly enrichment classes in art, physical education, and technology add to your child’s learning and fun.
We use Restorative Practice to create a positive, respectful community for children and teachers, reduce conflict, and teach our students how to problem solve. Our students learn to do the right things because they want to. All members of our community are supported by a full-time Director of Restorative Practices.
In 2007, the Baltimore Curriculum Project introduced Restorative Practice to Baltimore schools. Today many Baltimore City public schools use it as part of their focus on student wholeness. At Wolfe Street Academy, it’s the heart of how we care for each other with respect and kindness.
