Welcome to Wheatley, 2014-15 Edition!

At Monday’s monthly Board of Education meeting, the principals of each school presented an overview of the new school year along with a review of last year’s results on state and national examinations.

We have welcomed a number of new initiatives this year, including:

  • Several new courses
    • Social Science Research
    • AP Economics
    • Mathematical Problem Solving
    • Lego Robotics
    • Introduction to Engineering Design (through Project Lead the Way)
    • Sports in America
  • A New Learning Lab (adjacent to the Guidance Department)
  • Updated Flooring
  • New signs
  • A new student-produced mural
  • Updated bathroom
  • 1-1 technology initiative for our 8th Graders

Last year was an impressive year for the students and teachers at Wheatley, with students performing exceptionally well on the New York State Regents examinations as well as the College Board’s Advanced Placement examinations.
