Who We Are
Fred L Wilson Elementary School is a K-5 school of approximately 400 students and 50 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. Each grade level is assigned a region of focus which they integrate global content into their existing curriculum. We also offer a Spanish Language Immersion Program where students receive 50/50 Spanish and English instruction. This program is available to students who apply and are awarded a magnet slot.
