The school gets better every year. I appreciate how well the after care program has come together. My son's 3rd grade teacher was great. She stayed in constant contact with me throughout the year as far as my son's progress. It was rather concerning to me that NO ONE in her class made the honor roll though. The school needs a tougher policy on bullying. My child was the victim of bullying several times last year and it seems that Mr. Cartland is too lenient and really doesn't care, nor is his intrest fixing the problem. Bullying is SERIOUS and should never be swept under the rug. The school counselor (Ms. Little) dresses a little too provocatively for my liking, but for the most part, the staff is great!

While Wheatley's proficiency is increasing, someone else is taking credit for it: Turnaround for Children Inc. Turnaround has been in the school but a couple of years but is claiming credit for five years of proficiency increases at Wheatley Education Campus.

I give Wheatley 5 stars because the staff and administration at this school are some of the best educators in the nation. They work hard and long! They are committed to providing their students the best education possible! The school is improving and the staff works very hard to make sure every student is learning to their potential!

The curriculum here is way below standard. The teachers do not challenge the students that are above others in class which I believe hinders the child. The childrens behavior is ridiculous they use more profanity than any adult I know. I would not suggest sending any child to this Ghetto School.
