Absolutely stellar. We have moved a lot and have experience many different school. We were blown away by how welcoming and helpful the team at Wheatley has been with helping us get acclimated and ensuring our kids are supported and welcomed. This is truly one of the best experience we've had with a school, and we were foster parents of 31 children, so we are intimately familiar with the benefits of a good school.

The drama and music programs in the Wheatley campus help to take the students' boundless energy and put it to work on positive projects that push the kids be confident, proud of themselves, their school and their community. Their teacher Mr. Scott Slay has been a huge part of making this happen. He is very young. He acts as if no situation is too difficult for him. He is patient and caring but firm and has high expectations for each student. He spends a lot of his own money to make learning fun and empowering. He gets big grants too. We are really lucky to have this wonderful teacher at Wheatley.

Great school in one of the more suburban-like areas of Washington, DC. The teachers are great and many live in the area. In the years ahead, this school will prove to be a powerhouse institution in DC.

The school gets better every year. I appreciate how well the after care program has come together. My son's 3rd grade teacher was great. She stayed in constant contact with me throughout the year as far as my son's progress. It was rather concerning to me that NO ONE in her class made the honor roll though. The school needs a tougher policy on bullying. My child was the victim of bullying several times last year and it seems that Mr. Cartland is too lenient and really doesn't care, nor is his intrest fixing the problem. Bullying is SERIOUS and should never be swept under the rug. The school counselor (Ms. Little) dresses a little too provocatively for my liking, but for the most part, the staff is great!
