My daughter is about to graduate from Wheeling. I don't understand the assumed inferior quality of the school.

I believe Principal Lopez is to be credited for having created such a high ...  Read more

The teachers are supportive, the other students are friendly and the activites encourge parent support. As a choir student, this school also has one of the best music programs in District 214. I wish ...  Read more

The teachers are delightful, and ...  Read more

This school has gone downhill since I went there. The school hasn't made AYP (Annual Yearly Progress) in the past 3 years. The administration stinks. Most of the good teachers have either been let go due to recent lay offs or have retired. Most of the teachers are pretty bad.

I have resided in Wheeling, IL for the last 23 years. I grew up in Chicago. I have sent two daughters to Wheeling HS and they both have done extremely academically and socially.

Wheeling High School is a great school. The diversity at Wheeling shaped me into an international person. I am comfortable with all races and genders after graduating from WHS. Now, I'm at one of the top 50 universities in the nation and comfortable and friends with all races. I would like to say, ...  Read more

This school is really great. All the teachers treat all students like equal. I use to live in Wheeling and go to that high school, and everytime I pass by that town, it just sings to me that I'm home. So I recommend this school to anyone because, people are just very nice, and it is very diversed so ...  Read more
