About Us

Wilson Vance Elementary

Wilson Vance Elementary School, located on Findlay’s East Side, is home to about 325 students in grades 3 through 5. The experienced teaching staff provides caring, nurturing, positive learning experiences for all students. Through technology,  classroom lessons, field trips, personal experiences and dedicated teaching, students have an opportunity to develop their skills, confidence, and abilities at work and themselves. Parents are an important part of our learning community.

Wilson Vance has joined The Leader In Me Family! Each new school year brings opportunities; opportunities for academic growth but also opportunities for growth in all areas of development. Although children must be knowledgeable when they graduate, they must also be healthy, engaged, responsible, and caring people.
