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 is the best decision I could have made for my 5th grade son! The academics are rigorous but not exhausting. The teachers are enthusiastic and many have Ivy League credentials. The campus is beyond beautiful and there is a great sense of community that I have never seen before in a school. There is a program for a wide variety of interest. I also find the students at Wheeler to be more down to earth and grounded. There is no pretentious vibe that is definitely seen at the neighboring schools.
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.
