Not only is Booneville Elementary School concerned with the children's education but with the children's overall life experience. Many of the teachers go out of their way to assist the children in learning how to live in the context of community.

This school is great. Unlike all the other reviews this school does take care of bulling and sends home a resonable amount of homework. The future starts here.

I home-schooled my son until the second semester of first grade. I put him in Booneville Elementary and was very disappointed in the quality of the school. My son is very advanced in his level of abilities, such as reading at a third grade level, but they had no programs for advanced placement so he got very bored. We also had trouble with bullying and no one doing anything about it.

While this school may boost about it's scores. It does this by driving the students hard, burning out many. My husband and I removed our child from this school. My child was in the 1st grade and was taking home as much as 11 pages of home work a night. School cites that it has to due this because of the child left behind act. The school itself is run poorly with lousy communication to parents. Good luck getting special education help, it would only drag their scores down. Scores are all they think about the well-being of the children is only a minor after thought.
