Parents + Student + Teacher = SUCCESS
Description of Our School
Daniel Boone Elementary has changed considerably since its opening in 1963. Our school actively seeks parental involvement. When educators and parents make the commitment to join together to develop home/school relationships, a new door to success is open for each student in our school.

For middle school, our students will attend Clark-Moore Middle School. After completion of middle school, our students will attend Madison Central High School.

Mascot and Colors
Daniel Boone Elementary was named after the famous frontiersman that led settlers through the Cumberland Gap. Many of those settlers settled with him at Fort Boonesborough which is only about 12 miles from our school. Thus, Daniel Boone Elementary mascot is a Pioneer. Our school colors are green, gold, and white.
What We Are Doing to Improve
In order to continue growing and improving at Daniel Boone we are encouraging parents to take an active role in their child's education. We want parents to feel welcome and needed in our school. We are taking a concentrated look at our test scores and the released items to help prepare our students for testing. Professional development is scheduled to help teachers meet the needs of our students. We are assigning our Title I teachers and aides to work in reading and math across the curriculum. We constantly look for methods to meet the needs of our students.
