In partnership with our community and teachers, we challenge all students to become life-long learners and productive citizens.

About Us

Wilson Elementary School is located in Wilson Township in Alpena County in northeastern Michigan within easy driving distance of the City of Alpena. We serve a population of about 250 K-5 students from the Green, Long Rapids and Wilson Townships in Alpena County.

Wilson Elementary School opened in 1957 as an elementary school of the K-8 Wilson Twp. School District. With a campus located on ten acres of former farmland, Wilson became part of the Alpena Public Schools during consolidation in the early 1960’s. In 1967, 7th and 8th grade students began to attend Thunder Bay Junior High School. Wilson served grades K-6 until 2010 when 6th graders moved to Thunder Bay Junior High as well.
