What is the Aerie Approach? It's Wheeler's unique way of being a school that adapts to your child's natural strengths and interests.
Aerie, in its fourth decade at Wheeler, offers school-wide enrichment through an extensive set of curricular and extracurricular offerings. Named for the lofty eagle’s nest from which fledglings learn to soar, the department’s mission is to provide a rich environment for identifying and developing individual student interests and talents. Aerie offers curricular support to teachers, supplementary and independent course offerings, and professional resources for students who demonstrate a passion for learning.
At its core, the Aerie program promotes creativity and uncommon energy in the learning process contributing to Wheeler’s mission of creating a challenging and nurturing intellectual environment.
