I love this school. The way the students bond at events is great. We are like a big happy diverse family. Everyone I know has plans on graduating. Failing grades and bad behavior is frowned upon. If you are having problems understanding the material, there is always tutoring and you can email your teachers about any concern you have. This school should most definitely be ranked higher than a 6 out of 10.

This school is on the rise to be the BEST all around school in Cobb County. The challenge of a diverse financial population has been the challenge that administrators and faculty have taken on squarely and they are winning. Raising the bar in every area has begun to pay off with a local perception that Wheeler is a great school, with terrific students. The brand new building has helped create the atmosphere for excellence. This is a place for well rounded, real life, opportunities and challenges. High school is what you make it where ever you are. Wheeler has given my children every academic opportunity as well as quality sports and student life programs.

I am so happy to read the latest evaluation of Wheeler. We have just relocated here from a large school on the West coast. We are very happy with the rich diverse population of Wheeler and the offerings that Wheeler has. However, my husband and I have been disappointed at the scheduling mechanism that the school utilizes. Our sons last school used a system that was similar to a university scheduling system. It did not eliminate issues, but it certainly made the ability to drop and change classes a much easier process. I have given Wheeler 4-5 stars, but this issue should be evaluated and other schools should be used as an outside resource/example.

Beautiful school, top teachers. However, unsure if it is a County or specific school issue, but the scheduling of classes and the delineation of the actual schedule is questionable. The leadership from top down is missing out on how they could take what has historically been a struggling school and make it GREAT by starting the year off with balanced schedules that provide appropriate academic challenges balanced with each students passion. I would encourage the Board of Education to make an inquiry. Wheelers opportunity to attract the best and the brightest back to a beautiful school that has depth in student diversity and talent is now. This is an opportunity for Sweeney. The BOE should look at how the uneven class distribution is impacting the students. They need to provide appropriate software than can accommodate for block scheduling or evaluate the potential lack of leadership in curriculum adherence.. Chiprany is an amazing leader, but he may be missing the boat on scheduling. Wheeler's time is now. However, first impressions are crucial if you want to be a top notch school in Cobb. It must be top priority to place Students in classes that provide an academic balance.

As my son entered his last year in middle school I told him he should consider the opportunities offered at the magnet schools in Cobb County. He said he wasn't interested and wanted to go to his zoned school with his friends. I told him that was fine because he probably wouldn't be accepted anyways. He showed me by getting accepted at Wheeler Magnet and has never taken his foot off the pedal since. He will be starting his junior year and his classes are the equivalent of what I took in my sophomore year of college (I have a BSME). The teachers are incredible and being surrounded by other high achieving, focused students does wonders for a young teen's attitude and effort. I never thought I'd hear my son regularly ask me if he could stay after school to work with his classmates on a project or for a study group. He also is a varsity athelete and the sports teams work with the magnet students because they know for them academics are their priority. He loves the school and is proud to be a magnet student there.

The Wheeler magnet program is first rate. The school is consistently ranked as one of the finest public schools in Georgia and is recognized nationally as well.

Moving to a different state when your son is 16 is difficult. Fortunately, my son attended Wheeler High School. I applaud the teachers for helping to make his transition easier.

Wheeler has had it's Up's and Down's, It was old, and in need of repair. I had one child go thru all 4 years at Wheeler, and I believe he got a great education overall. Yes, just like at my work, there are some staff that should look for a different job, but I think the leadership from the Principal on down is great. The Magnet program is top notch and I would compare it to any other program in Georgia, heck the US. Now that Wheeler is getting a much needed face lift, I am sure the student and staff will feel a lot more pride in their school. Wheeler is a very diverse school and that is one thing that makes it better than many of the other HS's in the area. You can't teach certain things in a class room and one of them is LIFE. So YES, Wheeler is a great school, and will only get better. Go Wildcats.

Wheeler is a school where academics are strong, but where kids learn about the other parts of life too. There is room for every student to find activities, clubs, sports, and friends that fit and feel right. The Magnet program is excellent and without compare in the Metro area, however, Wheeler is more than the Magnet. The academics outside the Magnet program are top-notch. Both of my children attended the Magnet program. Many of their gifted and high ability friends didn't and still experienced a challenging education at Wheeler. The faculty is highly qualified, dedicated, and innovative. It will be amazing to see the new construction completed, so that the outside of the school finally matches the incredible things that have been going on inside the school!

My son went through Wheeler and received a wonderful education and was accepted into a prestigious college. We have had students who have graduated from Wheeler and received scholarships to Harvard and Yale. Can't ask for more.
