Wheeler School's Full Profile



Wheeler School says

Founded in 1889, The Wheeler School is an independent day school for girls and boys from Nursery through Grade Twelve. Although preparation for college is a primary goal of the Upper School, our program in all divisions is intended to be both academically rigorous and developmentally appropriate. Our goal is to build relationships based on appreciation and trust.



Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
