Get Involved.

Washington Heights Expeditionary Learning School offers many ways for families and community members to get involved. We welcome you to join us. 


Family | Teacher Association 

The FTA is comprised of WHEELS family members and educators. We host community and school events, develop outreach, beautification projects and much more. Join us for one of our upcoming monthly meetings to find ways to get involved. 


School Leadership Team

School Leadership Teams (SLTs) are vehicles for developing school-based educational policies, and ensuring that resources are aligned to implement those policies. SLTs assist in the evaluation and assessment of a school’s educational programs and their effects on student achievement. SLTs play a significant role in creating a structure for school-based decision making, and shaping the path to a collaborative school culture.


Friends of WHEELS

Friends of WHEELS is a nonprofit organization with the goal of making sure that every student in our school has the information, counseling and extracurricular experiences they need to succeed in college and beyond. Our fundraising efforts provide support for WHEELS students throughout their educational pathways.
