The mission of the Wheeler School community is to provide a safe, nurturing, and academically challenging environment where all students will be and feel successful.

In order for our students to be lifelong learners, we will provide:

  • A school climate that is pervasive in the caring and nurturing of children and supports the belief that children are our first priority.
  • High expectations that all children can learn at high levels.
  • High expectations for exemplary staff performance.
  • Application of multiple intelligence theory and innovative instructional practices that access individual students' talents and learning styles.
  • A firm, fair, consistent, and positive behavior-management system.
  • Involvement of parents in site-based decision making.
  • Recognition of the important contribution of parents to the development of their children.
  • Opportunities for broad community support and involvement.
  • Quality service for our customers (students, parents, community, Jefferson County Public School [JCPS] District, Kentucky Department of Education [KDE], staff, and others).
