Wilson Elementary School is a great school with outstanding teachers. The teachers at Wilson truly care about their students and go above and beyond to make sure each one of them is getting the best education possible.
I am a teacher at Wilson Elementary.I have witnessed first hand the great staff. The teachers at Wilson school are devoted to their students and put in many long hours to be sure that their students are safe, well educated, and happy. Our students often come back to visit the many popular teachers that we have at our school. We think of our students as our own children.
My son has attended Wilson School for the past three years. Two out of the three teachers seemed to only be there to get a paycheck. There is little supervision on the playground during recess, lunch, and PE classes. Bullying is very common. Little inspiration is found here. I am very sad to live in Gridley and have my child's education shaped by this school.
Wilson Elementary houses a very devoted staff, especially the fourth grade crew . Parent involvement is not especially high. More art docents and volunteers in extracurriculars would be nice, as this is a much needed area. A behavior program (character education) and additional staff are also needed, particularly in the upper grades.
