About Us

Wagner-Holt is a PK-6 public elementary school in the Lodi Unified School District.  It is located in North Stockton, and serves the needs of a highly diverse student population of approximately 520 students. Writer Richard Wagner and tractor inventor Benjamin Holt inspired the school's name when Lodi  Unified purchased land from the two families. The construction of the school began in 1988. The school opened in duplex homes in 1989 before moving to its current location in 1990.
