Wilson Elementary School was established in 1863 to serve the ranch families of West Petaluma. In 1908 a larger school was needed. The new school housed 4 or 5 classrooms and an auditorium. A picture of this school, designed by locally famous architect Brainerd Jones, can still be seen in the school office.


The Wilson School District merged with the Marin School District in 1960. After lively discussion the name of the new district became Wilmar Union Elementary School District, ("Wil" for Wilson and "Mar" for Marin)


In 1968 as enrollment continued to grow, the Cluster Building was added to Wilson School. Wilson reached its maximum enrollment of 425 students at that time.


In 2002 Wilson's instructional excellence was recognized when it earned the coveted "California State Distinguished School Award".


To this day Wilson School continues to serve West Petaluma families, many of whom are descendents of the original Wilson School families.
