Wilson Elementary School is a growing, dynamic neighborhood school of approximately 350 students in grades kindergarten through five. Our highly-skilled staff has created a uniquely positive learning environment which allows each child to flourish.
At Wilson, we have a strong instructional program which draws upon best educational practice and rich, engaging curricula. As a Title One school, we have a true focus on high achievement for all students. Our staff is committed to identifying the needs of each child and tailoring support to help that student flourish. We offer additional learning opportunities through small group and individual instruction as needed, as well as extended day options.
In addition to our excellent academic program, Wilson’s staff members also teach and reinforce the important positive behaviors that serve our students in school and throughout life. Through our weekly assemblies, classroom programs and individual recognition opportunities, we strengthen the community culture that makes our school such a special place. It’s what we call the Wildcat Way!
Wilson is privileged to have active, involved parents who provide hundreds of hours of volunteer time throughout the school, plan enrichment activities and support fund-raising events. Our Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) is a crucial part of the Wilson community and provides opportunities for our students to have additional experiences in the arts, wellness and physical fitness. Beyond the families of our students, Wilson is also fortunate to have a strong and supportive neighborhood area. Neighbors volunteer to work in our school, and many have invested countless hours to help us rebuild our neighborhood jewel: Wildcat Park. In the past two years, our community partners have also helped us create and maintain a wonderful fitness trail.
A thriving sense of community, a strong educational program and a focus on the needs of the individual child are all hallmarks of the Wilson experience and help make it such a great place for kids. At Wilson, we truly believe that it’s wonderful to be a Wildcat!
