Application

Stony Lane School is one of five elementary schools in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. The building is an open concept design accommodating different learning needs.

Our dedicated faculty and staff go above and beyond to educate, support, and nurture all students. Staff is comprised of talented and caring individuals working together to support students. This omnipresent family atmosphere contributes to the school’s accomplishments making our school a “positive place to learn and grow.” Stony Lane makes a difference in the lives of all students, demanding high expectations, and a true belief that all children can reach their maximum potential. Stony Lane believes in the infusion of the Arts across all grade levels. Our classroom and special subject teachers plan integrated content units. These thematic units culminate with many student performances throughout the year.

The use of data to inform instruction has been an immense part of student success. Classroom teachers' engagement with data, informs their decision making process, which leads to improving instructional practices, and greater student achievement. Stony Lane’s data driven culture is focused on student success, which leads to continuous growth, moving all students forward.

At Stony Lane, student success is also achieved through the partnership with our families, PTO, and local community. Stakeholders give their time supporting student success. Our school continuously reaches out to the community, encouraging students to learn the important values of “giving back” to the community through food pantry donations and supporting the “Hope for Warriors” program. In modeling positive collaboration, we instill in our students the qualities necessary to become lifelong learners and global citizens.
