    I think Pittsburgh Woolslair is a bad school. the kids in the 3rd grade are totally out of control They talk way to much say words like b**tch and n**ger and any other bad word. If your child is a 4th grader DO NOT attend woolslair for them. it could ruin their life to thinking. ( trust me i was a student there it is bad.)

    I have 2 children who attend Woolslair.I like to think of Woolslair as a family school. The parents and the teachers and the principal all seem to work together well for the purpose of educating and keeping the children Happy.I would not send my kids to any other school at this time.
