School Reviews

  • Recommended December 13, 2010 - Wheatland Center School has made great changes in the past few years. A new principal and administrator have really made the difference. WCS has SMARTboards in every classroom and mini LAPTOPS for every middle school student (grades 5 -8). Way to go WCS! - Posted by Parent
