Center Facilities

The Center for Advanced Studies is housed in a 33,000 square foot facility designed especially for the program. The Magnet building is adjoined to a state of the art Science building which houses our Organic Synthesis Research Lab, Robotics workshop, and Chemistry labs. The magnet building is a technologically advanced STEM facility with two physics labs, three biology labs, four math classrooms, a technology lab, and the advanced scientific internship and research classroom. The building has been flexibly designed to allow the program to remain on the cutting edge of technology and research based instruction.

Every student at Wheeler has access to an array of technological resources. A wireless BYOD (Bring your own device) network allows students wireless access with any device they bring on campus. Every Magnet student has an email address with access to Google Apps for Education. Google Docs and other apps provide a digital environment for collaboration with teachers, other students, and peers and mentors outside of Wheeler High School. Wheeler encourages the movement towards a paperless environment whenever possible.

Wheeler High School also houses several state-of-the-art STEM labs that are utilized for special high-tech offerings and for interdisciplinary studies and research. Included is an Engineering Lab, Healthcare Science Lab, Drafting Lab, Electronics Lab, and Computer Science Lab. These Labs are equipped with authentic technology and resources including a CNC mill, drill press, band saw, flight simulator (designed by Wheeler students), NIDA trainers, and hospital beds.

On May 3, 2001, the magnet building was dedicated in honor of the late Everett Coker. Mr. Coker, who was a long time Wheeler math teacher and Georgia Teacher of the Year in 1979, passed away unexpectedly in December 1997. The Center for Advanced Studies is officially housed in the Coker building.
