Open Quote Wheeler Elementary has become complacent, believing too much in the hype over Millard Public Schools in general. The truth is, this school consists of primarily upper income families that statistically have children who do better in school, no matter where they go to school. The music program is practically non-existent -- my daughter has attended Wheeler for two years and has never performed in a concert or any kind of music program. We are particularly disappointed in the special education department and are moving out of the district to find a better program for our daughter. It is an average school if your child does not have special needs, but if you need anything over and beyond, consider a different area of town! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
