The Wheeler School

Founded in 1889, The Wheeler School is an independent day school for girls and boys from Nursery through Grade Twelve with city and rural campuses in Providence, Rhode Island and Seekonk, Massachusetts. Central to the School's philosophy is the assumption that all of us, students and teachers alike, can and should contribute to and draw from the extraordinary energy and vitality which is characteristic of this community. Most importantly, we guide children in our founding precept: “To Learn Our Powers And Be Answerable For Their Use.”

We are proud of who we are: a joyful and challenging school that adapts to the natural interests and strengths of your child. We are a vibrant, spirited place founded by an artist, with an academic program renowned for its creativity and innovation, but also for its rigor.  We are a place where three-year-olds and seniors share the same city block and high-five one another on their way across the courtyard. We are place that seeks to inspire and reward individual initiative with a flexible and student-centered program, and we are place where all kids, however they evolve and choose to define themselves, feel equally embraced by the culture.
