Be Kind. Be the Example - this is our underlying philosophy in all
we do. We firmly believe that it takes a village to raise a child.
Thank you for being part of our village and modelling and advocating for
Home of the Warriors!
We are pleased to provide an outstanding education at Wheatley Area Public
School for our students. Innovative programs that meet the needs of all
our students are taught by our dedicated and professional staff who care
about your child. Our school provides extra-curricular opportunities
that encourage the development of excellence, integrity and respect.
We believe in challenge and discovery based learning
for all grades and ages. Gone are the days of paper, pencil, and
homework every night. Learning happens in each exchange,
conversation, curiosity, and discovery. The conversations you have
with your children are the most important thing you can do to support
their learning. Promoting age appropriate independence skills is also
very important. Staying involved with the school and in
communication with staff will help you understand the learning and the
various ways that staff challenge kids' thinking. In a world of
instant information and google, it's critical that students learn
problem solving, how to collaborate, think critically, and know how
technology helps them, personally, in their journey. The form of
technology will be ever changing but understanding how technology itself
can support learning and demonstrations of learning is the focus.
Every child develops and learns at their own pace which makes
personal progress and celebration essential. Teachers are required
to differentiate instruction so that it is suitable for each child's
appropriate level of learning. Help your child celebrate not only
academic success, but social and emotional successes too.
