Exemplary Programs
Wilbur Elementary has an excellent staff dedicated to inspiring Wilbur students to excellence. Student success is our goal! A focus on higher-level thinking skills, creativity, and problem solving is prevalent in our classrooms. By having high behavioral and academic expectations, our teachers provide children with a firm foundation upon which they can build a lifetime of learning. Our belief is that students must have a high engagement rate in their daily learning in order to maximize their potential. Therefore, a wide variety of instructional activities are offered throughout the curriculum which take advantage of many different types of learning styles. Both reading and writing are integrated through other subject areas, and students are able to show that they have learned content in a variety of performance-based assessments and projects. Students are encouraged to work together cooperatively as they engage in hands-on activities whenever possible.

Curriculum Highlights
At Wilbur Elementary, we strive to make learning fun for our students while stretching them to learn at their highest potential. We believe that perseverance, hard work, and great character are the foundations for success both in life and in school. During monthly iCommunity (inspiring community) meetings, students participate in activities that build our school-wide culture of positive mindset and strong character. Even in our cafeteria at lunchtimes, students are engaged in problem solving and fun activities that link to the monthly success trait.

A STEM Lab is a new addition at Wilbur. For one week each marking period, each class goes to STEM during their specials period. Students work with engineering principles, build robotics, and experiment with different sources of power for models they have created. At the core of this program is the belief that all students need to be exposed to STEM principles to stretch their learning and enhance their achievement.
