We love that our children can attend Southern Boone schools. The class ratios are small and the administration really cares what happens to these kids. They stay on top of their homework and test scores to make sure they succeed to their fullest potential. We wouldn't move anywhere else just to stay in this school district.

I have been in the Southern Boone County School system since Kindergarten. Southern Boone offers Dual Credit Courses when you are a Junior or Senior. These Dual Credits, usually are transferable to schools in-state and some out-of-state schools. If a student takes all the DC classes offered they have the ability to enter college as a Sophmore. Like every school there are 'good' and 'bad' teachers, but the 'good' teachers outweigh the'bad'. One problem with the school is some student's lack of drive, this is a problem only because it often serves as a distraction for those who want to learn. Another is that the school has drug-testing, but it's a joke of sorts since no one has been caught, and drug-use at SoBoCo is well-known. Overall it's a decent school, with many extracirricular activities and an alternative school conducted in a seperate building. I would

If you want a highschool where kids are encouraged to live up to their potential, and if you want a school in a district where teachers care, and most students care...this is the school for you to attend. Parents are involved, the sports and music programs are strong, and the school is part of the A+ program: students who have good attendance and at least a C average are able to obtain 2 free years of college education after high school. Wow! What a deal!

I graduated from this school last May, and I loved everything about it. The teachers are easy to get a long with and the classes are challenging but not overbearing. Work load is never to much, and the teachers have good communication based on test days. Block scheduling makes homework help easy to get and teachers are always willing to help.

Every teacher at this school wants to teach every student who is willing to learn. The college prep classes have prepared myself, my own sibilings, and friends for the next 4 years ahead of us. The english and history courses were the most challenging, but I got the most out of those teachers because they made me work so hard. I would recommend every parent who is thinking about putting their kids into this school to do it and really push them to take the college classes offered, it will hep them out so much in the long run.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments to test high school students in Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, English I, English II, American History, Government, and Biology. The EOC Assessments are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Missouri for each subject. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
