Mrs. Wheeler is a great teacher. I loved having her for APES this year. She's so kind, caring and always willing to help a student out when they need the extra help. The content can be hard sometimes, but she teaches it well and if you're smart enough, the class should be just fine. Those who give bad reviews obviously aren't smart/diligent enough to take an AP class.

Cuts enough corners on every lab until they become circles.

She is a wonderful, helpful teacher. The reviewers below who decry her intelligence or teaching style do not deserve to be taking Ms. Wheeler's class. If you are smart and complete her assignments, APES will be a fantastic experience, both in terms of personal growth and learning.

Great teacher. Would highly recommend. Literally 0 problems. Anyone who says otherwise probably has an IQ that's borderline mentally unstable.

She just sometimes does not explain things clearly. The tests hav some stuff that is exactly unrelated to what we learned in the textbook. Thats just my opinion though.

Great teacher. She provides tons of online material for students to use and learn from. Those who have a hard time clearly aren't using the resources available and are blaming their stupidity on the teacher. I'm TERRIBLE at anything science related, but the stuff she teaches and the resources she provides help me excel in this class. 10/10.

Ms. Wheeler is the worst teacher I have ever had in my life BY FAR. If you plan to succeed, read the textbook and watch the videos she plays in class at home. She also takes the same exact questions from her quizzes and puts them on the tests so take a picture of all the tests/quizzes when you get them back. She grades homework extremely unfairly. A bunch of us got 15/20 on a homework assignment, we all went up and asked why and she said "i dont know, but its not a big deal." GET OUT FAST!!!

she is so bad that mrs.Walters 8th grade class would seem like the perfect classroom. I still got an A and I learned a lot butall of it from the textbook. When I finally finished her class it was one of the greatest moments in my life. Her class is all busy work unrelated tests and pointless labs.

I wish i could switch to Mrs. Hill's class. She gives no notes, randomly grades and gives random tests. I asked her why she gave me the grade she did, she said she circled something looked and saw no circle and walked away.
