    Wheeling Middle was honestly the best school I went to. I loved the classes they taught me ever thing I needed to know before starting high school. If I could I would definitely turn back the clock and go again.

    The principal truly cares about the students and emphasizes the importance of being involved the school beyond being a student. As eighth graders they are able to earn a credit each toward high school foreign language and math.
