    Boynton is a wonderful school. I have an autistic son and we moved to Ringgold just so he could attend Boynton. He has done very well there. My daughter attended regular 5th grade at Boynton as well and had a great time. The faculty and staff at the school are caring folks and we are deeply grateful for everything they've done for our children.

    We moved our son from a private school to Boynton because of the cost. I have been pleased with the overall education he has received. Also the environment at the school is very friendly and informal. However I am disappointed that there is no art or Spanish instruction. This is not the fault of the school though...just lack of funding. When the kids have "computer lab" they do nothing more than play games on the internet. Not a great use of time for sure. I am also very frustrated that they allow the kids to purchase ice cream for snack EVERY afternoon. Sure the parents can just not give them $ but sometimes they borrow it from friends without our knowledge. They should only offer healthy snacks on a daily basis and sweet treats every once in awhile. So much for trying to curb the childhood obesity epidemic. Despite these issues I am pleased OVERALL with our experience at Boynton especially considering we are saving thousands of $$$ a year by not sending our son to a private school. I do miss the private school environment though especially the focus on character education and Christian values. However Boynton is definitely one of the best public schools in the area.

    The teachers and staff are the greatest!! I have an autistic son that I never thought would talk and since he has been there-over a year now-he knows his ABC's and numbers to 20 he can write his name and he is speaking some words for us now. That is the greatest gift that anyone could've ever given me...I can't say enough good things about this school!!!

    My grandson began Boynton school December 1 2005. I had been very concerned because he not only was beginning a new school he was also living with us in a new town away from his mother and sisters. The teachers and staff at Boynton made his transition easy for him and us. The experience that we have had at Boynton has been remarkable.I would recommend this school to anyone who has a child with special needs.They teach much more than just the curriculum they also teach children to respect and to be kind and courteous to one another. We could not have asked for better teachers for our grandson. He has excelled academically as well as physically and emotionally because of the wonderful guidance of the great teachers and staff at Boynton.

    My daughter began at Boynton in January 2007. We were worried about her changing schools mid year. Once she started we were amazed at how well she did with getting adjusted. She has done 100% better at Boynton than the school she left from. I am so happy for her she enjoys going to school. With the year ending we are sad but we know that next year she will get to meet another wonderful teacher like the ones that have been with her through Kindergarten. I want to thank ALL the teachers at Boynton for everything you do! You are Wonderful!

    My daughter just started to Boynton 1st grade. She had never attended school nor was she familiar with any type structured environment. I could not be happier with the entire school. I have not been displeased by anything. All the employees at Boynton make even the parents feel important so I know they are helping boost my little one's confidence every day. The first grade program so far is excellent. The teachers are amazing and in my opinion they are nothing short of miracle workers. My daughter has adapted better than I had ever dreamed. I give credit not only to her fine teachers but to each and every person working at Boynton. Thank you so much I feel as if we are very fortunate to have a school of such caliber for our little ones.

    Our granddaughter is a 1st grade student at Boynton Elementary. It is phenomenal what she is learning! I don t remember learning about contractions antonyms telling time identifying and counting currency congruent shapes and adding 2 digit numbers until at least the 2nd or 3rd grade. But it has become ordinary class work for her already. She has homework Monday Thursdays. It generally takes her about 45 minutes to complete it including her reading assignment. It has become significant and gratifying one-on-one time for us. Her teacher guidance counselor and school staff has been sensitive and supportive on issues regarding her personal adjustments. I know that the positive academic standards set forth as a foundation for her at this school today will empower her for the rest of her life. It s wonderful to have confidence in knowing my granddaughter is really learning in school!
