    I agree with all other parents, that this school is extremely unwelcoming. I only let my children go there one year, to try out. That was a horrid choice for me to make, my children said there teachers were very mean. I came for a conference and the staff was very unsatisfactory. I believe this school could have done a little better than that, including the school nurse and counselor, and even the principal.

    My children attended Boone and I agree that the staff is un-welcoming. The office staff spends too much time gossiping to notice us parents. They are the worst ! Other than that the children got along well for the most part.

    Poor teacher retention. Teachers possess poor communication skills. Teachers exhibit a lack of professionalism.

    Terrible! Most teachers seem new and clueless.

    The academic was awesome at this school.The extra extracurricular activities where very poor.Besides one younger grade going on a field trip,there was nothing for the older grades.Although I was always thanked for my parent involvement,some staff didn't make us feel welcomed.When we reported this to the higher up,we where told thats just the way some staff are.Besides the high Taks scores the school didn't offer much else.We tryed our best to give back and do many things at Boone.It was hard to leave but we thought it best to pull our child out.We are looking for the whole package,not for high scores on a test!

    This school has been ok for my son.He has learned alot,but I've had to push for the extra help. The teachers at this school are for the most part caring.However on most visits they haven't been to welcoming.There is no since of belonging to something bigger here.There have been cases where staff came across as rude.I've found the higher up my son goes grade wise,there is more focus on the younger grades.Most Teachers report they don't want to deal with the drama.My son as well as other students pick up on this and feel like throw aways.The shcool has been safe over all.When trying to get help with these matters they where not truely heard.So much focus is put onto the Taks test.Other studys fall way behind.Extracurricular activities and times of fun are far in between.Sadly I realize there can be no change intil someone will listen.We'll always be glad for Boone,but sad at the sametime.We look forward to a more welcoming school for our family.
