Overall the past couple years I've been at Boone I've experienced some highs and some lows. School is overwhelming but finding your own niche helps make it less hectic! Its important to enjoy the tradition but not let it consume you, enjoy the clubs but stay focused on your academics and always stay humble. Its very easy to get comfortable in high school but you need to stay on top of your future whether its college or your career. Enjoy all that Boone has to offer and make as many friends as you can! Boone Pride!

At Boone High School, there are many opportunities for students to get involved in different clubs or sports they are interested. Also, if their is not a club that someone is interested they have the opportunity to start their own with the support of just one teacher! The club range from nationally ranked such as Interact Club, to simple clubs to get to know people like the tactical wizardry club! Boone offers a diverse range of clubs for just about any student.

There are always those kids that slack in the class but the teachers are willing to put them back on track, I like how most of the teachers are very nice the staff is very helpful when something is needed from students. Of course it's not perfect, but nothing is exactly perfect so sometimes a few of staff members and teacher aren't like what expected but overall those who are doing above and beyond beat that!
