Hunt Elementary opened its doors in 2003-2004 as the third elementary school in the Newman Crows-Landing Unified School District.

Hunt Elementary School acknowledges and embraces the many cultural and ethnic similarities and differences of its students and staff, and encourages the contributions of all constituents to one vision of educational excellence. All site personnel nurture and cultivate citizenship, responsibility, independence, and believe that the school should be a catalyst for school/community-based activities and the driving force behind uniting of parents, students and staff to achieve the common goal of academic success. The goal is to provide a positive school year, both academically and socially, for all students enrolled at Hunt Elementary.
