The Wheeler School Reviews

An outstanding school. The teachers and administration have really gotten to know my children well, and truly seem to care about each child as an individual. They take pride in their community and strong academics. They model and expect good manners and respect for one another, and they don't tolerate disruptive students. There are no special privileges for being affluent; the poorest kids are treated and educated as well as the wealthiest ones. Administration and teachers are accessible, generous and approachable. We are so glad our children are here after a terrible few years at the other school up the road. This school is amazing!

Wheeler has provided a wonderful experience for my 3 sons who attended 1st grade through high school. In addition to college readiness they had every opportunity to enhance their passions by self advocating and having a responsive administration ready to assist. The academics are a 10; being smart is cool and while sports are not as competitive as a public school environment, at Wheeler everyone plays and that is a good thing! Would recommend and would do it again.
The teachers are what make Wheeler the best learning environment for any student willing to learn. In my years at the Upper School, I have found it impossible NOT to engage and participate in each of my classes! While the academics are hard, the teachers have made me feel as though we are all a team facing our challenges together. When I achieve, my teachers achieve, too.
