Wilson School has had many configurations throughout the years - K-8, K-3 with some special needs classes, K-4 with an English Language Learner class, and its current population of grade K-5 students. For a time, Wilson was able to accommodate Beech Street School's overflow of kindergarten students. More recently, the City rented space at the Easter Seals building on Auburn Street to accommodate 5 classes of our kindergarten students.
Wilson School was renamed Henry Wilson School and Community Center when an addition of 6 classrooms over a multipurpose room (gymnasium/cafeteria combination) was added. The newly purchased playground equipment became a popular recess activity at that time. Shortly thereafter, a portable unit housing 2 classes was set on the site, leaving the site as it looks today.
