Mission

Our mission at Stony Brook Elementary is to seek Truth, appreciate Beauty & demonstrate Goodness. It is expected that everyone act: REASONABLY - RESPECTFULLY - RESPONSIBLY

Academics

We engage students with best practices including a reading and writing workshop within a balanced literacy approach. Our mathematics instruction emphasizes the development of students' understanding of concepts and problem-solving skills with the goal of developing mathematical thinkers and problem solvers. Science is taught through an inquiry model which encourages children to pose questions while providing the tools and experiences necessary to guide them through their own investigation.

Clubs

The mission of the HV After School Enrichment Program is to provide meaningful programming for elementary age children. We use a holistic approach to child development that involves enrichment of the mind, body and spirit through academic, physical and social development. We have strategically collaborated with the STEAM Works Studio Princeton, Central NJ Engineering, Magic Glass Arts, Young Rembrandts, Fyre Code, Mad Science and community members to provide engaging opportunities

Programs

The Hopewell Valley Regional School District partners with the Hopewell Valley YMCA to provide safe and engaging before and after care programs for families. The YMCA offers child care, enrichment sports opportunities and programming in the mornings, afternoons and on days when school is not in session.

Our curriculum promotes an articulated sequence of experiences which cultivate the intellect, foster social competence, and promote physical growth enabling students to progress to an optimal level of performance. To support our students in making healthy choices, we have become a CATCH School (Coordinated Approach to Child Health).
