COVID-19 Update for Prospective Students and Families:

The Wilson School is sized for success no matter the circumstances. Wilson families enjoyed the option of in-person or virtual learning through our ConnectED Flex program in 2020-21. We began the 2021-22 school year masked and distanced, and are keeping a close eye on CDC and local guidelines and restrictions. We are happy to report no gaps in learning for Wilson students throughout the pandemic. Learn More

Giving Back at The Wilson School

Wilson kindergarteners host a school-wide lemonade stand as part of a science unit. Teachers have partnered with Alex's Lemonade Stand, a non-profit that supports childhood cancer research. This year, students sold lemonade kits to our school community and surpassed their overall goal. This is one example of how students are encouraged to MYMAGO (Make Their Mark A Good One) at Wilson.
