Starting in the 2015–2016 school year, Woolslair will be a partial STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) magnet in grades K–2 as well as a neighborhood school. The school’s partial magnet program will grow one grade at a time after the 2015–2016 school year. At its core, STEAM education combines several disciplines into project learning to help students gain a better understanding of how science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics relate in the real world. Additionally, this program’s unique approach promotes hands-on learning, ownership, and collaboration to help all types of learners succeed. Woolslair’s STEAM program is available by application for students who reside in any area of the city. Non-magnet students will also receive STEAM education programming while at Woolslair.
At Pittsburgh Woolslair, our students participate in our 5Ps School-Wide Positive Behavior Plan. Each student is expected to follow the 5Ps throughout the school day – Prompt, Prepared, Present, Positive, and Polite. Students are rewarded monthly for following the 5 Ps. Woolslair offers an Art Club (grades K–2), an Energy Committee (grades 3–5), Student Council (grades K–5), and a Safety Committee (grades 4–5). We have partnerships with Bloomfield Garfield Corporation, St. Margaret Health Partnership, Mercy Behavioral Health, and Bloomfield Preservation Society. Students have frequently won the Ben Carson Scholarship.
