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 to help students discover and grow a deeper passion for learning.
At its core, the Aerie Approach promotes creativity and uncommon energy in the learning process contributing to Wheeler’s mission of creating a challenging and nurturing intellectual environment that builds skills for college and beyond.
