Wilson Community 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 220 K-5 students from the Green, Long Rapids and Wilson Townships in Alpena County. We also currently support a preschool program with over 30 children enrolled.

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


As committed educators of Wilson Community School, we strive to guide and inspire students to become successful, innovative, productive citizens by providing the skills and tools necessary within a positive and supportive environment. Through these efforts we will guide student to reach their maximum potential in all adventures of life.
