Wheeler School

216 Hope St, Providence, RI 02906

The school bears the name of its founder, Mary Colman Wheeler, a leader in art and education in the early 1900s. The college preparatory program, which includes Advanced Placement courses in most academic areas, is further enriched by classes in music, art and theater and prepares graduates for success in college. The school strives to develop the individual talents of each student in a supportive educational atmosphere. The traditional curriculum is supplemented at all levels by a variety of elective courses, special-interest activities and enrichment experiences. The school's computer center promotes the acquisition of computer skills at all levels of the instructional program. A substantial enrichment program features specially designed activities, games and studies several times per week. Qualified juniors may spend a semester studying overseas or in New York, Vermont or Colorado. The Hamilton School at Wheeler, established in 1988, serves high-potential language-disabled students in grades 1-8. The curriculum is based on a structured, multisensory approach applied to reading, spelling, grammar and writing skills. Wheeler owns a 120-acre farm a few miles east in Seekonk, MA. The farm houses athletic fields and facilities and serves as a summer camp location.
