  • Fred L. Wilson Elementary School is a K-5 school of approximately 450 students and 65 staff members located in Kannapolis, North Carolina. We offer two  unique magnet programs: Global Studies and Dual Language Immersion. All students K-5 are a part of the Global Studies Program and we offer magnet slots for students outside of our attendance zone.
