Huntsville’s Mission:

Huntsville Elementary is dedicated to creating a community of lifelong learners by capitalizing on the individual thoughts and perspectives of all students. We will foster creativity and focus on student interests, strengths, and preferences as we prepare them to adapt and flourish in a rapidly changing global world. We will achieve academic success for all students in a safe and nurturing learning environment through the partnership of staff, students, parents, and the community.

By Phone: 336-427-3266


Please note:  Changes in a student's afternoon transportation should be made in writing and provided to our office staff in the morning to allow staff adequate time to communicate the change to the classroom teacher, bus driver, and staff supervising afternoon dismissal.  Transportation changes delivered by phone very likely will not be communicated to all appropriate staff.  Thank you for understanding that changes communicated within a hour of dismissal will also very likely not be conveyed to all appropriate staff.

All classrooms at Huntsville Elementary School are outfitted with voicemail.  If you call to speak to your child's teacher during instructional hours, please be aware that you may be asked to leave a voicemail message.  If you call the school after regular operating hours, our automated directory will allow you to leave a voicemail message with your child's teacher.

The design for Huntsville was the product of cooperative efforts by teachers, administrators, and residents from all areas of Rockingham County. The planning committee considered all the capacities under which these schools would operate and planned features accordingly. 

Among the features are centrally located administrative offices at the main entrance to provide adequate supervision of all who enter the building. The grade levels are broken down into smaller "houses" comprised of one Pre-K class; three classes for grade levels Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade; four classes 3rd grade. The media center, multipurpose lab, art room, music room, resource rooms, gymnasium, cafeteria and project lab are located centrally for easy access from all areas of the building. The Gymnasium, Stage, and Dining Room are situated so that these areas may be accessible after hours for community use, without disturbing the academic portion of the building.Construction began in the Summer of 2001 and was completed during the Summer of 2003.

Huntsville Elementary School provides the community with a beautiful state-of-the art facility with over 75,000 square feet. Huntsville Elementary, which opened in August 2003, welcomes students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through Fifth Grade. Literacy development and meeting the needs of diverse learners is a top priority. All students participate in art, music, and physical education classes weekly. Huntsville Elementary School offers a safe, nurturing environment in which academic excellence and character education are valued.         


     Parental involvement and support from the surrounding community is outstanding at Huntsville Elementary. Our dedication to our mission of helping students "grow as readers, writers, and solvers of real-life problems" makes us a unique learning community.
