I believe that the Wheatley school is a very diverse and opening school. Wheatley embraces their students and have a variety of after school programs. In addition the school has a great amount of sports open to everybody. I would recommend Wheatley because of the great teacher and awesome education. Lastly Wheatley is a great size and very small classes.

Extremely kind and passionate teachers who all want the best for their students. However, the school system is extremely lenient on its students. Students can get away with getting their grades changed by having their parents call the guidance department. Grade inflation is a big problem.
I love this school because there are so many teachers and resources to help students. The teachers have an excellent relationship with students because they are always there to offer help when we need it. The people are very friendly and everyone knows each other.
