Hunt Valley Elementary School was established in 1969 and underwent an extensive renovation in 1996. Our school is in Region 4 and within the West Springfield HS Pyramid which feeds into Irving Middle and West Springfield HS. Hunt Valley serves approximately 625 children in kindergarten through grade six. Hunt Valley is very proud to be among the few schools in Virginia that have been recognized for several years with the Governor’s Award for Educational Excellence and the Distinguished Achievement Award. Our staff members are dedicated to the success of each student. We offer a variety of instructional enrichment and intervention strategies during the school day to support all students with their unique learning needs.
Critical thinking and problem solving continue to be integral parts of the core curriculum in all academic areas. An accelerated math program is offered to students who require a faster pace of instruction in grades 3-6, and we continue to have many students qualify to take Honors Math 7 and Algebra 1 in seventh grade. Each classroom has 4-5 desktop computers and our lab has over thirty computers, and all classrooms are equipped with SmartBoards for interactive learning and teaching. There are a number of portable laptop carts available for classroom check-out.
Our positive behavior approach was created to suit the needs of our school. All Hunt Valley students are expected to demonstrate Helpfulness, Accountability, Wise Choices, Kindness, and Safety for All (HAWKS) in their classrooms as well as in the cafeteria, on the playground, in the hallways, and on the bus. The development of responsibility and respect for self, others, and the community are school-wide priorities. Acceptance of cultural diversity and a positive school climate continue to be emphasized.
Hunt Valley has an active PTA that meets on the first Thursdays of each month. Parents and volunteers are always invited to take an active part in school activities and PTA events. Hunt Valley is fortunate to have a community that supports our school's dedication to excellence and continuous improvement for our students and staff.
