Gilman Schools

The Gilman Public School is a pre-K-12 system housed in one building within the Village of Gilman. With a stable, mostly veteran faculty and staff, the school system provides excellent opportunities for our graduating seniors to advance to higher education and an up-to-date elementary system that focuses on student mastery of core curriculum elements. The Gilman Public School faculty is currently involved in a district wide curriculum assessment to further ensure that our system measures up to Wisconsin state standards.

In addition to exceptional educational opportunities, in 2004 Gilman added a new outdoor athletic complex that contains a football field along with a 9-lane seal-flex rubberized surface track that is one of a very few such tracks in the entire state. These facilities complement the years of success the district has had at the state level in athletics.

Western Taylor County Public Library – Gilman

While the size of the facility and the collection are small, Western Taylor Co. Public Library is a part of Wisconsin Valley Library Service. That means we are part of a group of 30 libraries who loan their materials among each other and have all their items entered into the same virtual catalog. Ordering an item that our library doesn’t own can be done in the comfort of your own home by going online to which will take you to the virtual catalog. You can also ask the librarian to order the item for you by calling 715/447-5486 or emailing her at
