    Overall Experience: My favorite part of Boone is the football games. Everyone wears their orange and white. Everyone always has a great time celebrating and socializing.

    Overall Experience: So far the school is great. I just think the white kids just stick with themselves.They all seem to know each other.The teachers do care about the students and are great.

    Overall Experience: This school was not a place I would reminisce about, it was a requirement for 3 years (thank God for dual enrollment), and the only place I enjoyed being was the theatre department, which was the best in the county but was given the least money in the county because we don't throw balls.
