Welcome to the Boone High School Information page. It is our goal to do everything possible to prepare students to be successful at school and to prepare each student for the challenges after high school.
Boone High School Essential Standards
Essential standards are course‐specific standards carefully selected from the Iowa Core that students must know and be able to do by the end of each school year in order to be prepared to enter the next grade level or course. While teachers may cover additional material, the essential standards are those they want to guarantee that students learn before leaving the course. Learn more about BHS Essential Standards at the link below.

High School Attendance Procedure
The BCSD recognizes that excessive absenteeism and tardiness are the most frequent causes of failure in school and later in life. Boone High School believes that daily, punctual attendance is an integral part of a student’s learning experience and is required of all student to receive the maximum benefit of the educational program.
Athletic/Activities Good Conduct Rule
Participation in school activities is a privilege. School activities provide the benefits of promoting additional interests and abilities in the students during his/her school years and for a lifetime. Students who participate in extracurricular activities serve as ambassadors of the school district throughout the calendar year, whether away from school or at school. Students who wish to have the privilege of participating in extracurricular activities must conduct themselves in accordance with board policy and must refrain from activities that are illegal, immoral, or unhealthy. Students who fail to abide by this policy and the administrative regulations supporting it may be subject to disciplinary measures.
National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)
We are pleased to inform you that Boone High School has been selected to represent schools across the nation by participating in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). NAEP is the largest nationally representative assessments of students across the country, and it is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), within the U.S.
In the Boone Community School District’s ongoing effort for continued improvement, one way to help us understand our successes and areas for improvement is to ask those impacted about our school climate, resources, and relationships. Below is the link for the High School Climate Survey.
