Wheeling High School is a comprehensive high school with a STEM focus. STEM literate graduates are problem solvers, innovators and logical thinkers. Our STEM for ALL focus means that skills related to STEM such as problem solving, teamwork, scientific inquiry, technology and communication are purposely taught and reinforced throughout the curriculum. It means the skills and content delivered throughout has a broader context and facilitates the diagonal movement of students along a career program of study—occupational, technical, and professional—alongside the traditional academic pathway—preparatory, average, honors, and Advanced Placement.
