    Overall Experience: It needs renovation, the school grounds are falling apart and the bathrooms do not provide a mood that people are okay to use them. people rather hold it in than to go to the school bathroom. the rules are too strict and very one sided in favor of administrstion.

    Overall Experience: I enjoy going to Boone High School because the teachers are so nice and they will help you to graduate in any way that they can. You can ask them to help with college scholarships/applications and they'll help! The people are super nice at Boone also. We have the best principal ever, Mr. Johns!!!
