Stoneybrook Academy 2a door Colman intro

Door to classroom 2A of Stoneybrook Academy, as shown at the beginning of every The Kids in Ms. Colman's Class book.

Stoneybrook Academy is the private school where most of the activities in the Baby-Sitters Little Sister series and the The Kids in Ms. Colman's Class series take place.

The other elementary schools in Stoneybrook are Stoneybrook Elementary School, the public school that most of the BSC charges attend, and Stoneybrook Day School, a private kindergarten to twelfth grade school.


Stoneybrook Academy has been around since at least 1935 in Karen's Treasure, however it celebrates it's 25th anniversary in May which was mentioned in Karen's Tattletale. In Twin Trouble it's said that there is 230 students at Stoneybrook Academy. The students do not have to wear uniforms.

In Karen's Big Fight, Elizabeth mentions there's an application process to get into the school.

Elizabeth Thomas-Brewer and Watson Brewer are members of the parent's council as mentioned in Mallory and the Mystery Diary. Their children Andrew and Emily Michelle will attend someday.

Ms. Colman's class got their first computer in Karen's School Surprise. It's mentioned that there is a computer room, however, it only has three computers.

In Karen's Pizza Party is mentioned that there was work done on the cafeteria and auditorium over the summer. Since it was not fully done, work went into the school year. While the classrooms were being painted, classes were held in the cafeteria or an empty space.

There's a hall monitor group called the Red Brigade in Karen's School Mystery. Students get elected by their class once a month and they get special badges and belts. There's a ceremony at the end of the month giving the next person their badge and belt. Anyone starting in second grade is on the Brigade. Mrs. Noonan is in charge of the group.

Students at the Academy tried out for parts of the Stoneybrook Middle School production of Peter Pan in Starring the Baby-sitters Club!. They were used to play as the natives of Neverland and the Darling children (besides Wendy).

In Karen's Tattletale there's a school song that the students sing at the end of anniversary week.

Individual and class photos are taken in Karen's School Picture, the kindergartners go first and ends with the fifth graders.


In Karen's School Bus Karen mentions that if she and Hannie lived a little closer, she and Hannie could walk to school avoiding the bus ride. It’s within walking distance to McLelland Road when Karen walked to school before she got caught.

From Forest Drive Karen tells us that you turn right, then left, go straight, turn right and then you're in the parking lot in Karen's Turkey Day.


Many of the classrooms are arranged around a courtyard, Ms. Colman's class is one of them in Karen's Ducklings. Stoneybrook Academy has an auditorium and a gym, but not a separate art room.

In Karen's Hurricane, there used to be a giant oak tree on the playground. It was knocked over during the hurricane and Seth Engle used the tree to make a bench. A new tree grows in its place.


They got their first choir in Twin Trouble.

Karen Brewer, Nancy Dawes, Hank Reubens, Sara Ford (Ms. Colman's room), Edwin Grant, Debbie Dvorak, Mia Waters, and Oliver Chang (Mr. Bergers room) were part of the star club in Spelling Bee with Mrs. Ellis in charge of them. Mrs. Titus picked the students in the club. There's about 50 students in total but the students spend time with those around their grade level. The second grade and the first graders are together.

  • In the middle of December there is a Fun Night hosted by students on a committee in Karen's Magician. Karen Brewer and Edwin Farley ran for the second grade representative for the Fun Committee.
