    We have two children who go to Wilson one in the 4th grade and one in the 1st grade plus we have many friends and neighbors whose children attend Wilson. I have been continually impressed with the quality of the teachers and staff - they really care about the students and the education the students receive. Also the community and parents are very involved with the school. Overall Wilson is an excellent school and I am very glad that my children go there!

    All my three boys attended Wilson and I can't say enough nice things about it! It has a 'small town' feel in a big city.
