This school is a very good school because it teaches kids to use their coping skills. The teachers are very well trained. The only thing I do not like about the school is like if someone had a broken leg or something like that, And they acted up to the point where they had to be restrained, I mean how would they do that with the injury? My daughter has been taught a lot even though she is doing her first year here. She says that she has made a lot of friends and they trust her. I recommend this school o anyone who's kid(s) need help. Only ages 5-21. My daughter is in the 8th grade, Mrs. Alessi's class. She is an awesome teacher. Thank you staff of Wheeler Clinic! You have helped my daughter a lot so Far!

My son attended this school at the age of 3years. He was diagnosed with Autism at 18 months. Without Wheeler he would not be where he is today. He is 19 years old and attends University of Nevada, where he is a Film major. He didn't talk until he was 6 and was not potty trained until then also. He is very intelligent and carries a 3.1 GPA. His math skills are a 4th grade level, but excels in English, History, Geography and Film. You have to focus on their strengths and just deal with their weaknesses,because they have so much more to offer and excel in. Without Wheeler he would not be an adjusted and self sufficient young man. I can't say enough about the school and it's program. Betsy Martin

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
