Wilson is a dynamic and growing school with a great deal to offer students and families. With a strong curricular foundation and talented, caring staff, Wilson provides an excellent learning experience for our over 415 students.
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!
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!
