Wheeler high school is an outstanding school. The teachers at Wheeler high school are excellent! They make sure no student is left behind in class and offer many different types of tutoring sessions.The students are all very uplifting to one another and wish success to all their peers. The schools diversity teaches other students how to respect each others cultures, race and religions. The school even offers international night where the students get to try things from all over the world. Wheeler high school isn't like another school which is why I believe every student graduates with a knowledge on just about everything, and is ready for the real world ahead of them.

Wheeler Highschool is an amazing school. They have many activities for students before and after school. There AFJROTC program was something that I was involved in for my four years there and it was the best. I was also in orchestra and the music program was just amazing. The magnet program is hard to get into but a really program to get your student into. Finally the counselors they really help students with their schedules and if a student is on the verge of not graduating they put them in online classes to help get the credit that they need. Thank you wheeler! #2018
Wheeler is an awful school! The teachers do not care about their students, they are only there for a paycheck. They do not care if they succeed academically or their wellbeing. This school did not at all prepare me for college. There were constantly fights, drugs, and alcohol going on through school. Kids were having sex in band instrument lockers. The administrators did not care about whether a student was punished fairly, they were also only there for a paycheck. The school was never clean. This school is all around awful and I would NOT advise enrolling your child here.
