About Our School
Brief School History
Huntsville Elementary School is a 500 + student elementary school for the southwest area of Rockingham County, North Carolina. The design at Huntsville has been replicated to create schools for the Williamsburg, Monroeton, and Bethany attendance zones.
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 four classes for grade levels Kindergarten and 3rd grade; one K/1st blended classroom; three 2nd grade classes; one 1st/2nd blended class; three 4th grade classes; and five 5th grade classes. The media center, computer 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.
