The Origins of Wheatley

More specifically, in terms of origins, we researched in great depth our origins as a school. We came to find that Wheatley’s founding values still hold true today. When looking through the first yearbook known as the Aurora as well as some of the building and floor plans for the school, we came to find that the main focus was to create a warm and welcoming environment for student learning. You can see from these pictures the many structural differences as far as the interior as well as design of the building itself. 

We would like to thank Dr. Feeney for granting us access to all of these pictures! See slideshow below!
In addition, see Dr. Van Wie's interview going back even further than the high school, to the beginning of the district! (coming soon)
