Pre-K - Grade 6
At North Stonington Elementary School, every student is recognized as a special individual who is supported to become a successful learner and a happy, healthy young person.
We understand that students enter NSES with various abilities and interests and we work as a team with families to ensure that social and academic benchmarks are reached. Throughout elementary school students are engaged in building solid foundational skills in reading, writing, and math, as well as establishing positive social and emotional habits. As students need support, interventions are provided and monitored.

Upon entering Wheeler Middle School students are encouraged to take responsibility for their behavior, attitude, and education. Students begin to experience greater independence and are engaged in learning that challenges them to think critically, work collaboratively, and support claims with evidence.

At Wheeler High School students are afforded the opportunity to chose from a wide variety of elective offerings, clubs, and athletic opportunities, all designed as part of a comprehensive high school experience.
Students at every grade level take academic assessments to evaluate their progress. The data is used to provide targeted support in reading, writing, and math.
