History of our School

Stone Spring Elementary School opened in September, 1993 with approximately 470 students in grades kindergarten through five.  We estimate our opening day enrollment for the current year to be approximately 520 students with a professional staff of approximately 50 teachers, 28 paraprofessionals, 20 support staff, and 2 administrators.

Principals serving Stone Spring Elementary School include the following: Bruce Hamilton from 1993-2006; Sandi Thorpe from 2006-2008; and Lynn Sprouse from 2008 to present.

Our school is located just off of Peach Grove Avenue between Port Republic and Stone Spring Roads. It has grounds that include open areas for play; ball diamonds; soccer fields; blacktop areas; as well as a separate preschool and kindergarten playground.  The building itself is designed around two open courtyards that provide enclosed areas for outdoor classroom activities, as well as allowing all  classrooms to have access to natural lighting.  In addition to regular and special education classroom spaces, the school has two computer labs, an art resource room complete with a kiln, a resource room for STEM programs, a modern media center, a well-equipped music classroom, a large gymnasium, a well-stocked book and Language Arts materials room, and a Spanish resource classroom. Stone Spring also provides instructional programs for several regional special education programs serving students not only from Harrisonburg, but from other neighboring school divisions as well. We are also a preschool center for HCPS housing 9 various preschool programs. Stone Spring is also the first Arts Integration school in the City of Harrisonburg Public Schools system.

Our school exists for the sole purpose of serving our students and families. We invite parents to visit often, to provide their ideas, and to get involved in their child’s educational experience at Stone Spring.
