  • Pittsburgh Woolslair Pre K-5 is a hidden gem nestled among the streets of Bloomfield and Lawrenceville and housed in a Nationally Historic Landmark Building. Starting in the 2015-2016 school year, Woolslair became 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 grew one grade at a time after the 2015-2016 school year encompassing all grades in the 2018-2019 school year. At its core, STEAM education combines several disciplines into project based 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 3Rs School-Wide Positive Behavior Plan. Each student is expected to follow the 3Rs throughout the school day - Respectful, Responsible, and Ready and Safe. Students are rewarded monthly for following the 3Rs. Woolslair offers an Energy Committee (grades 3-5), Student Envoys (grades 3-5), 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.
