As a Fine and Performing Arts Magnet Cluster School, Boone School's Expressive Arts teachers provide instruction in Visual Art, Dance, Music, Drama, Library, and Physical Education. We also integrate the arts throughout our curriculum to ensure that students have regular opportunities to perform, share, and explore their artistic and athletic abilities.

Boone Vision: Kindness, creativity, and an understanding of diverse perspectives will guide us as we intentionally engage in learning opportunities and take action to bring about positive change in our world.

Boone Mission: We actively seek to learn more about ourselves, others, and the world through the arts and through learning opportunities that respond to our identities and promote positive relationships. We rise up to advocate for ourselves and others so that everyone is valued and empowered.
