At Wilson School, 4 > 2 is more than just math ...it is a way of life.
We believe it is GREATER to do things FOR others rather than TO others.
We teach children that we need great people in the world and great people do things FOR others, not TO others.
It is greater to do things...
... for your family than to your family
... for your friends than to your friends
... for your school than to your school
... for your community than to your community
... for yourself than to yourself
Doing something for someone is almost always a good decision. If you do something to someone it is almost always a bad choice.
The 4 > 2 philosophy can be applied both in school and out of school when talking about personal relationships, behavior, safety, work effort, kindness and caring, just to name a few.
So remember, at Wilson School, we believe that wherever we go and whatever we do...

Students at Wilson have opportunities to participate in a wide variety of activities outside of the school day, such as Student Council, Homework Club, and after school sports, just to name a few. Many parents generously volunteer their time for the Wilson PTO, which plans multiple family events throughout the year. In past years, the PTO has been able to donate a significant amount of money to purchase playground equipment and to provide extra funding for the school. The PTO hosts an annual Fall Fest, which is a highlight of the school year for school families and school neighbors alike.

As part of the state accountability system, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) produces report cards for every district and school in Wisconsin.
Assessment is used to monitor student progress. In the classrooms, teachers provide a variety of experiences that will help students practice the skills necessary to help them learn and apply their knowledge in order to demonstrate their understanding.
There are a variety of assessments that are used in the district in order to monitor the progress of individual students, track student growth, and evaluate the success of the school and district. Some of these assessments are required by the state, others are part of district efforts to monitor and evaluate progress.
In all cases, assessment results are used by teachers, schools and the district as part of an established protocol of continuous improvement. Individual student needs are recognized and evaluated. Student growth is compared to expected growth and districtwide growth is measured to evaluate successes and plan for the future.
