List of Elementary Schools in Wilson County, NC

There is a total of 14 elementary schools available to parents residing in Wilson County, North Carolina. All these schools are safe and are fully staffed with teachers who love kids and will educate them to the highest degree.

The costs are also generally very low, yet the schools are generally in a really good condition and offer everything there’s needed for the kids to be safe, entertained and, most important, ready to learn a lot of useful things.

Below we have a complete list of elementary schools available in Wilson County, with some extra details about each of these schools. Remember that most of them have that “small town” vibe to them. Some consider this a con, but I consider it a pro because kids are in a cosier place, almost like in a family and not a school.
