Rating 3.27 out of 5 147 reviews
WUHS is in the process of a major overhaul. Facilities are being improved and academic offerings are being expanded.
I have loved my experience at Wheatland. I have gained friendships with both teachers and students. I love going to school and having the support of everyone around me. My favorite part of Wheatland would be the choir, which I take part in. Similar to most teachers at Wheatland, choir has a wonderful teacher. He has taught me about music and leadership. The only reason I would not like Wheatland would be a few bad teachers I have had.
When I was graduating in 2017 the school was finally updating and and providing a larger selection of classes and programs.
It is a smaller school of around 400 students total, so that gave everyone a lot of room to get to know people and be more involved. There are some funding issues all across the board, but the staff does genuinely care. There's a teacher for nearly every student's needs. Even if you don't attend their classes they are willing to talk to you and get to know you.
The school isn’t that safe as I’d like it to be. It could do better in the education department but it’s not
I found that I was not challenged enough during my time at Wheatland Union High School. I took all of the Honors and AP classes available and still was never truly challenged. I had difficulty with the science based subjects because that is not my strong suit. The Math department was chaotic as they were transitioning to include inter-graded math for the lower class-men. I worked up to Calculus and while the workload was manageable and the coursework was easy to follow, they had only one teacher for all of the Algebra 1, 2, Pre-calculus, Calculus and AP Calculus classes. It was clear she was tired and overworked, she had no time to give students one on one attention and would become frustrated with her classes easily. I did not feel as though Wheatland did an adequate job at helping me prepare for college, the college-prep resources were not openly accessible and I often had to go out of my way to find the answers to questions I needed.
Wheatland Union has great school spirit and student and parent involvement. With the new administration, many new things are happening and can’t wait to see the changes.
School spirit is low and many of the teachers don't seem to care about their job. However, it does have an open campus, which is nice so long as it's not rainy.
All Wheatland High School staff is excellent! All the teachers genuinely care about their students and do everything they can to help them succeed
Wheatland Union Highschool has great culture all around the school. Kids are in the quad every friday at lunch. There is always a lunch time activity on Fridays that brings the school together. The kids know that they always have someone to talk to. There isn’t a teacher on campus that won’t listen to their problems. You have to get involved during your highschool experience and Wheatland Union Highschool wants you to get involved. Every semester there is a clubs on the quad where you can sign up for a club and become involved with your school. The leadership team takes the time and makes the school better. They make the school be the best it can be. This school makes you want to come to school everyday.
I like Wheatland but I wish more AP classes were offered because the max number of AP classes you can take is 3.
Graduated this school in 2014 in the midst of all the improvements they were making to the physical property, unsure how it is now but when I went there the staff where excellent and made due with that they had but it still is a small town school and has a lot of limitations because of it.
Wheatland isn't a very interesting school to attend. It's in the middle of a thousand rice fields and there's not much ethnic diversity among students. Not to mention the academics aren't great so even though they want us to go to college I think they mean the community kind.
even the cubs there are, are not active
Most teachers at Wheatland go above and beyond!
Extracurricular opportunities are limited. The ones that are around are generally very fun to be involved with because you basically already know everyone. Level of commitment is shaky because many kids aren't very committed or the administrators aren't pushing commitment to the students. Sports such as basketball, football, volleyball, or cheer generally turn out to be the most popular and fun options.
