Welcome to the J.O. Wilson Elementary School website. I cannot state enough the honor and privilege it is to serve as principal of such a welcoming and thriving school community. J.O. Wilson is a special place, and I treasure the relationships that we are building and will continue to build with our amazing students, families, and staff. Here at JOW, we take pride in the social, emotional and academic development of our SOARing Cardinals and we thank our families for allowing us the opportunity to serve, support and provide a nurturing environment for their most precious gems.

My vision is for J.O. Wilson Elementary School to be an environment in which our students feel safe, loved, challenged and prepared. Our mantra of S.O.A.R., Safety Ownership Acceptance and Respect is embedded in everything we do as a school community. These values anchor our school mission:

At J.O. Wilson Elementary School, we are SOARing to success every day in every way by creating an environment in which joy, pride, positive interactions, and growth mindsets lead students to comfort in taking risks, self-advocating, and facing adversity.

Thank you for visiting our website to see some of the many learning and engagement opportunities that are offered to the Cardinals of J.O. Wilson Elementary School.

Proud Principal,

Mitchell V. Brunson
