From the Director of Admission
We welcome your interest in The Wheeler School. Founded in 1889, Wheeler is a co-educational, independent day school located in the heart of Providence’s historic and dynamic College Hill neighborhood, adjacent to Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design. Our student body consists of 817 students in grades nursery through 12, taught by 124 dedicated faculty.

Wheeler is best known for its extraordinary academic curriculum, breadth and creativity of co-curricular offerings, its cohesive community, and the dynamic, lab-school-like focus on program innovation and creativity. The Hamilton School at Wheeler, to take just one example, is a small "school-within-the-school" for bright students with language-based learning differences.

Wheeler also boasts a second campus only 15 minutes away that serves as a pastoral counterpoint to our home in Providence. This gorgeous 120-acre facility, affectionately called The Farm, features a state-of-the-art field house, track, playing fields, an ecological preserve, and conference center.

The Wheeler website is an excellent introduction to the school, but we would love to meet you in person as well. If you have more specific questions or would like to schedule a visit, please do not hesitate to contact us.

With warm regards,

Jeanette Epstein
