The parents, students, teachers and principal are a great team. Everyone works very hard to support each other and keep the school student focused. There is not an "I" at Boone it is all about the "WE"!

Boone Elementary has a caring staff and bright programs that work for each child. They are knowledgeable about what it takes for successful students. They provide a good foundation of ethics for our children to grow and learn from. We moved here from the KCMO school district so my daughter had to play 'catch up'. With my child and the staff's perseverance she was able to achieve. So comforted to know that there are genuine people who truly cares about the kids education.

I love the principle at this school. The teachers care about the sucess of the school. The staff identifies with the parents as to which child belongs to them. I would recomend this school to other children who live in the district. We bought a home in the area and could not have asked for a better school to be proud to send our children to. They try very hard to keep the children safe and we appreciate them. Both of our children are on the honor roll. Thanks E. Haggins

The quality of this school is outstanding and has a wonderfully undescribable staff that work real hard to give our children the best teaching there is avaible as schools go that is. The staff are very concentious as to the parents and who the child that belongs to them for they really make a sincere attempt to get to knpw the parents and the child that belong to them and what kind of eviroment that the children have to live in for they really do care. I have seen many childern give hugs to there favorite teachers and ppl tthey meet so I wish all schools were this good and had staff like the ones at boone elementary every school can learn from them....

The MAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Missouri. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
