School Highlights

Stone Robinson Elementary School prides itself on creating a positive, engaging and enriching community, both within the school itself and with its many stakeholders.

Community building is a cornerstone of everything that happens within the school. All staff members are trained in Responsive Classroom, and all students participate in daily morning meetings designed to build a strong community of learners. In addition, the school adopted CARES (Cooperation, Assertion, Responsibility, Empathy, and Self Control) as their character education initiative.

The school serves as a hub for the local community. Each year, there are multiple events in which the school opens its doors to parents and community members. A highlight of these events is the Design Challenge night in the spring. Parents and their children come to school that evening to get a hands-on look at the design and problem-solving work that the students experience by participating in such challenges as creating tin foil boats that can float with the largest number of pennies and using software to design 3D objects to be created using the school’s 3D printer. Additionally, the school supports parent and community participation through such events as outdoor movie nights, school beautification projects, and a fall festival.

A hallmark of the student experience at Stone-Robinson is a focus on “p-based” learning that incorporates authentic problem solving and allows students to pursue their personal passions. An example of this from the current school year is a plan to develop highly engaging, interdisciplinary lessons involving the creation of outdoor learning spaces that will allow everyone to make use of the school’s vast outdoor spaces, trails, and access to the Rivanna River. Students are completing this work in multi-age teams and will be engaging community members and services for support.

Another academic focus of the school is its literacy program built around the tenets of the Daily Five, an instructional methodology that focuses on building literacy skills while simultaneously building students’ independence, allowing them to be assertive about their learning and providing them with choice in their work. There also is a strong focus on metacognition and comprehension strategy instruction.
