Wilcox was named in honor of longtime Pocatello educator Claude A. Wilcox. At the Monday night Pocatello School Board meeting where Wilcox Elementary School received its new name, Dr. Rulon Ellis, Superindentent of Schools, said, "I have a very warm spot in my heart for Mr. Wilcox, and I'm very pleased the school board has chosen to honor him. He was principal and teacher at Tyhee Elementary School when I started school there in the first grade." Mr. Wilcox's career spanned 42 years as teacher and principal.
The 50,000-square-foot building is one of the largest elementary schools in the district—carefully designed to eliminate architectural barriers. With no steps and very few doors, the school offers exceptional access. Corridors were minimized by placing a media center at the core of the building. Window space was also kept to a minimum, and the building is carpeted throughout.
