Welcome to Our School


West Oak Lane Charter School (WOLCS) is a vibrant K-8 public school located in the heart of Philadelphia's Northwest region.  Since opening its doors in 1998, WOLCS has educated thousands of students representing dozens of zip codes throughout the city.

As a charter school, WOLCS provides families with expanded choices in the types of educational opportunities that are available for their children within the public school system. 

The Board of Trustees and staff of WOLCS are committed to continuous improvement and academic excellence. This commitment has yielded significant results. Since 2006, our state test scores have risen sharply, and many of our students move onto some of Philadelphia’s most reputable charter, magnet, and other special admission schools. 

WOLCS students enjoy a safe, structured, nurturing and academically challenging environment in which they are able to develop morally, intellectually, culturally and socially to their fullest potential. 

Since its inception, WOLCS has provided students an opportunity to enjoy a public education on par with many private schools. Your continued support and contributions will help us to maintain smaller class sizes, purchase digital media resources, employ instructional aides, and support athletics and after-school programs.
