A Message from the Principal

Letter from the Wheeler High School Principal

Welcome to Wheeler High School

Home of the Wildcats!

Dear Students and Parents:

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year at Wheeler High School, home of the Wildcats!

We are excited about the start of this year and know it will be the best year yet! Our students’ academic success is our #1 priority. At the same time we pledges our resources to the development of the whole student, engaging the community through relevance and rigor, emphasizing citizenship, and celebrating diversity. The Wheeler staff is committed to continuous improvement and will challenge you to be a self-directed lifelong learner. To develop those skills you must plan for success. Use this handbook as a resource as you navigate your way through the school year. 

This handbook is designed primarily for the students. However, I encourage parents to browse through the handbook and become familiar with the contents as well. You will notice the handbook covers academic planning, activities and clubs, rules/regulations/procedures, some behavior policies, and other general information. Although we have worked to include vital information and knowledge about Wheeler in this handbook it is difficult to address all areas that make Wheeler the best school. If you encounter areas that are not included in this handbook please do not hesitate to ask questions and always use your best discretion.

The last bit of advice is to enjoy your high school career. The high school years are full of friendships, activities, trips, and experiences that you will remember for a lifetime. The entire Wheeler staff is committed to providing the environment needed for an outstanding high school education. When you graduate with a Wheeler High School diploma, the world is yours for the taking!
