Wheeler High School Reviews

I have attended Wheeler through the Magnet program, and I can say that it's been a tough four years especially in regards to academics and social life. The school does a good job challenging your intellect with the difficulty of the classes, and the teachers are there to help you through most of the steps.

The sports here are decent, but basketball is the main attraction; we are ranked in the nation for basketball and have had a couple players play in the NBA such as Shareef Abdur-Rahim and Jaylen Brown.

Although diversity is one of Wheeler's strongest features, it seems that having a minority-majority population has led to a difference in culture compared to other schools in East Cobb; we are more vocal about injustices and through the viewpoints of many different cultures and ethnicities represented in the school, we have fostered a welcoming presence.
Review Wheeler High School
Wheeler is a great school. All teachers care about their students and they have a great ESOL program. Wheeler welcomed me when I spoke no English, so I learn it there and I met awesome people and friends. Wheeler has some great teams. During my high school I really enjoyed to support the wildcats during baseball, football, soccer and basketball. The principal and teachers always recognize students for their efforts. We have a honor roll which it is really good to get the students to have a 3.0 gpa or above to see their names their and also honors night to recognize outstanding students.
The diversity at Wheeler is no joke. Teachers are there to help you, and there are many opportunities through clubs and extracurricular activities. The nature of the school chimes off as not too ghetto or not too snobby; it's at a decent balance. The admin, especially Dr. Giles, are there for you, and you can tell that the our principal does his job because he genuinely enjoys it - that's not something you find everywhere else.
