Nester Welcome to Wilson Elementary where Rangers Lead The Way!

I am honored to be the Principal at Wilson Elementary and am anxious to serve each family to my utmost ability. It is an exciting time to be a part of Wilson. Each and every staff member has embraced the responsibility and truly has the passion to meet the needs of your children.

At Wilson we have great expectations for ourselves as educators and for all of our learners as well. Every encounter that I have with community members as well as our staff members reassures me that not only Coppell ISD, but that Wilson Elementary, is the place to be!

Coppell ISD believes in academic excellence for all learners. It is our responsibility to educate each learner regardless of their needs and interests, to give each learner the necessary tools to survive in the real world, and to provide opportunities for all learners to excel and stretch their learning.

Research has shown us that one of the most important factors in the success of a child's education is a strong connection between home and school. We highly encourage you to talk to your children about their experiences at school, to read with them every night, and to join us in the building as often as you can, working together to inspire our learners to be leaders in an exciting, ever changing future.

I am so very proud to be a part of this excellent team at Wilson and leading our learners into the next frontier where Rangers lead the way!

Important Info From the District

Beginning October 1, enforcement of violations captured by Stop-Arm cameras (on buses owned by Dallas County Schools) will go into effect. In the City of Coppell, there have been over 100 incidents of Stop-Arm violations recorded by the Dallas County Schools Transportation Department since the start of this school year. The Coppell ISD Board of Trustees recently approved an inter-local agreement between the district, the City of Coppell, and Dallas County Schools for use and enforcement of Stop-Arm cameras. Drivers are reminded not to pass a school bus when its red lights are flashing and stop arms are displayed. The fine for a stop-arm camera violation has been set by Dallas County Schools at $300. All questions about the program including enforcement should be directed to the Dallas County Schools Transportation Department. For more information visit stoparmcamera.com

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR FOOTBALL GAME ATTENDEESIf you’re planning to attend home football games at Buddy Echol’s Field, remember that no outside food or drinks are allowed inside the stadium at Coppell High School, and no alcohol is permitted on school grounds (including parking lots). We appreciate your support and adherence to these rules.  They will be enforced by CISD administration and the Coppell Police Department.
