Function of Organization/Site:
Wolfe Street Academy is a public charter school offering pre-kindergarten through 5th grade. It is operated by the Baltimore Curriculum Project, a local nonprofit organization. The school works in cooperation with the entire community to offer rigorous instruction, efficient management practices, and a culture of excellence. The school implements Reading Mastery, which provides a sequenced, rigorous curriculum. Grouping students in small skill-level groups allows each student to progress at his or her own pace academically. All students receive art, music and physical education several times each week.
The Wolfe Street Workforce comprises students dedicated to making a meaningful and lasting impact on children in the neighborhoods surrounding Johns Hopkins Hospital through education, athletics, and mentorship.
