Wheeler High School Reviews
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.
I absolutely love Wheeler High School. It is seriously the place to be during your high school years! There is so much diversity and all kinds of different ethnics around. First off, the school is huge! It is over 5,000 sq ft and it has new and old buildings. There are plenty of stairs, elevators, bathrooms and hallways to transport where you need. Next, the food is awesome! Wheeler's cafe is divided into 5 different types of shops where you could either get deli, nachos, pizza, and we even have salad bars! WOW! On top of that the teachers at Wheeler are very helpful and considerate, though if you are still struggling with your subject Wheeler does have tutoring after school for all subjects on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the cafeteria right after school. I can't deny, I can not compare any other high school to my awesome Wheeler High!
I was a part of the Magnet Program at Wheeler High School, and I loved the experience. The teachers were amazing, the classes were interesting, and the students there are the best friends I have ever had. In my junior year, I was able to take, in my opinion, the most fun class my school has to offer, Advanced Physics and Robotics. In this class, everyone broke off into teams and each had to complete tasks faster and more efficiently than the other teams. The delegation of roles, such as builder and programmer, was up to each team, and nothing was taught. You could learn from internet tutorials or each other.
