Wheeling Middle was honestly the best school I went to. I loved the classes, they taught me ever thing I needed to know before starting high school. If I could I would definitely turn back the clock and go again.

The principal truly cares about the students and emphasizes the importance of being involved the school beyond being a student. As eighth graders they are able to earn a credit each toward high school foreign language and math.

Wheeling Middle was the best school that i have ever attended. The teachers and principles have control over the school and make it a great place to learn, the arts and music department is great with teachers like Mrs. Bender and Mr. Filben who make the arts and band fun. The other teacher are great the science department, social studies department, physical education, language, and math are the best.
