    Health & Safety: I rarely feel unsafe at Boone. It is mostly surrounded by neighborhoods; however, if someone really wanted to invade Boone, it would not be very difficult.

    Extracurriculars: There is something for everyone to do at Boone. I made many close friends through running cross country and track and field and by leading Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

    Overall Experience: Boone High School has many traditions that are really fun and bring the whole student body together. I just graduated in 2016, but during my senior year, we got a new principal who really proved he cared for the well-being of the students. He made it the best year out of my four years at Boone. A few of the teachers are particularly brilliant and have led me to succeed way beyond my expectations in their classroom.
