Southern Boone County R-I School District Reviews

Southern Boone School district is a wonderful environment for any student in mid-Missouri. Compared to any other district, Southern Boone's student environment is exceptionally balanced and the educational preparation is exceptional. The only thing that I would change about Southern Boone is the safety regulations that are hampering the student's experience at school. The regulations are understandable, but still much too restrictive.

I love that it is a small school district and the teachers get to know each of their students of a personal basis. They seem to truly care about the kids and what is going on in their lives, other than just treating them like a number.

As for changes there is no gifted program in our high school, which makes it difficult for children whom have been in this program up until then because they do not feel as though they are being challenged.
Safe and tight niche school. Sport programs are excellent and parents are very involved. Resources relevant to the modern world are lacking.
