Our Story

Wilson Elementary School has been serving kindergarten through fifth grade students in the Tulare City School District since 1920. We work hard to ensure each student receives a balanced core instructional program that emphasizes skill mastery and character development in a supportive family-like environment.


Named after President Woodrow Wilson in 1920, Wilson Elementary School enjoys the distinction of being the oldest school in the Tulare City School District. Members of our school community take great pride in noting that the “Wilson Family” includes many of Tulare’s most notable citizens. Former Chief of U.S. Naval Operations, Admiral Elmo Zumwalt Jr., and two-time Olympic gold medalist and Congressman, Bob Mathias, head the list of individuals who proudly attended Wilson School.
