Wheeler High strives to foster forward thinking, independent students. Teachers are incredibly supportive, and the smaller class sizes provide a private school experience in a public school setting. Given smaller size there are some limits in opportunities, such as athletics, and AP courses, but co-ops with other schools and online courses resolve these issues.

Wheeler High School
is a small but excellent school that offers great one on one time with teachers because of its small size. The teachers are very helpful and are always trying to make sure that everyone understands the subject. The clubs are diverse and engaging. This school adequately prepares students for college and starts them on the path to get to the college of their choice, thanks to the counselors.
I love the sense of community at my high school. I feel appreciated and cared for. All the teachers know who you are, and all the teachers are here to help you. The sports here at Wheeler are very good here. there are enough clubs and activities for any student to participate in two sports and other extra curriculum activities. I love Wheeler
