    My daughter attends BMS and she loves the school and after school programs. I had a problem last year with my daughter getting ran over in the hallways ( she is a little thing) and I talk to the principle. I can say I was impressed with the action they took to help her. They literally made changes to the schedules the next day. That is a school that cares about the students and the parents concerns!

    I love this school!! The school spirit is beyond the best I have ever seen!! BJHS Panthers are the best because they have positive self-esteem and teachers who are glad to come into the school and say 'Gee I am glad to be here!!'

    Both of my children now in high school attended Boonville Jr. High School. They were both selected to be in Honors math and lang. arts classes which really helped to challenge them and prepare them for high school. The principal does a wonderful job creating a sense of morale and partnership within the school.

    My son had always struggled with school. His grades had never been anything to brag about. After attending Boonville Jr. High for 3 months he came home and told is father that he liked school! He is now an honor roll student and looks forward to class each day.
