Stony Point High School is a high school in the Round Rock Independent School District in Round Rock, Texas, USA. It is the second newest of the five high schools in RRISD. The principal is Albert Hernandez, who previously worked as the principal of the Stony Point Ninth Grade Center. The Ninth Grade Center is adjacent to the high school and was formerly home to Hopewell Middle School. However, due to overcrowding, a concern that is continuously prevalent in the RRISD school district, the middle school was changed into a freshman-only campus. Due to the opening of Cedar Ridge High School, Stony Point freshmen were moved into the main campus, and the freshman campus is now used as Hernandez Middle School.
The school houses the Health Science (previously Science and Medicine), the S.T.E.M.(Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), and the Business, Finance, and Marketing Academies. Stony Point has offered the International Baccalaureate since the school year of 2008-2009.
Stony Point's feeder schools are Hernandez and Hopewell middle schools.
 Campus Structure
Stony Point High School, being the second youngest of the high schools in Round Rock, has a very modern architectural layout. The campus consists of multiple wings designated by letters (e.g. A Wing, B Wing, etcetera). The academic wings (A, B, and C) are each two stories high, with multiple stairways connecting the floors. Overcrowding prompted construction of the C wing onto the A wing soon after the school was opened.
On the second floor two skyways connect the academic wings with the "mall" area, cafeteria, and the various other non-academic classrooms (further subdivided into lettered wings). Stony Point High School features a full welding shop, with various forms of welding equipment. Additionally, the shop houses a full tool selection for the students in the agricultural manufacturing course. Furthermore, Stony Point High School offers multiple engineering and architecture courses with full access to the Autodesk catalogue of engineering software.
 Academic and Fine Arts Recognition
May 2007, Stony Point High School made the Newsweek list of top high schools with a placement of 1,068. The rankings are based on the total number of Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB) and/or Cambridge tests that were given at a school last May divided by the number of seniors graduating. All public schools listed achieved a ratio of at least 1.0000, meaning they had given at least as many tests in 2006 as they had graduates. Now although all graduating classes have been outstanding, It has said that the class of 2006 was the most accomplished class academically that the school has seen since 1999.
 The Minor Riot
After a media-proclaimed riot on August 24, 2006, Stony Point made headlines. Security after this event was enhanced to a point of total "lock-down" at the campus. The aftermath following the fight, primarily the police handling of the event, lead to an investigation by the NAACP.
A sizable force reported to be around 30 officers strong was needed to quell the fighting.
 2007 Dell-Winston School Solar Car Challenge
In the summer of 2007 a group of 4 Stony Point High School students led by student Robert Wilson competed in the Dell-Winston School Solar Car Challenge, a nationally covered solar car challenge. They named their team Solaris and designed and constructed a solar car, dubbed Diablo Del Sol, with grants and donations from the corporations Lowe's, 3M, and Applied Materials. After the 9 day race from Round Rock, Texas to Newburgh (city), New York, they placed 3rd in the Classic Division, with 451.1 miles completed at an average speed of 17.07 miles per hour.
