Governor Wolf has a partnership with East Stroudsburg University as a Professional Development School. Students success is the primary focus with multiple teachers co-teaching in classrooms with smaller groups of students to meet their individual needs. Teachers and teacher candidates from ESU are engaged in conversations surrounding best practices and ways to improve their teaching. The impact of this partnership is felt at every level and the students benefit from the University's presence and ongoing exchange. The Principal's leadership and commitment to this partnership are making a difference, not only in district scores, but in the daily lives of the students and teachers.
The teaching staff is great. The PTA is strong and involved. I am very disappointed with the leadership as it is now. My child was at this school for her 1st 2 years - principal then was awwesome and the focus was on educating ALL kids -- newer principle, testing scores and budget constraints are very apparent when your child doesn't fit within the 'norm'. The leadership within the administrative function is very obviously absent. I would not recommend this school if your child is not a strong-self starter.
Governor Wolf is an excellent school. It combines quality education and an excellent teaching staff with the important element of fun. This school allows children to be children while encouraging growth, providing an excellent environment for learning. The principal is superlative and the teaching staff excellent. The PTA is very active and encourages family activities and a community environment. Overall, this is an environment for any child.
