Our school gratefully acknowledges the tremendous support we receive
from our partners, parents, and community volunteers.
Welcome to Boone Elementary! Boone Elementary is located in Paradise Hills, in the Morse Cluster. Boone Elementary School’s Mission is that all Boone students will be promoted to grade 6 with the age-appropriate skills, motivation, curiosity, and resilience necessary to succeed in middle school and to begin making critical decisions about high school and future career choices. We are diligent in our efforts to provide all students with a strong academic foundation on which to build their future success. In collaboration with our families and community, Boone Elementary's focus is on providing a safe, nurturing, supportive learning environment for every member of the school community. We foster the continuous academic and social growth of all students by engaging them in challenging, enriching learning experiences that meet their individual needs and prepare them for life in the 21st century. This is accomplished by immersing students in a standards-based curriculum that demonstrates relevance to their lives, provides in-depth experiences in all curricular areas, and provides a strong foundation for future learning.
Boone’s ethnic diversity is its strength. Our student population consists of Filipino, Hispanic//Latino, African American, White, Pacific Islander, and Asian students. Through this wonderful integration of cultures we value, support, and learn from one another. Students with special learning needs are integrated into the general student population. Appreciation of this diversity is evident throughout the school. Aligned to the vision of Global California 2030, the building blocks of the academic program are commitment, competency, communication and collaboration. Staff members take responsibility for basing instruction on best practices by engaging in ongoing professional development through research, reading, and collaboration. Teachers use ongoing assessments and data to guide instruction. Techniques, strategies, and results are shared with parents on an ongoing basis, thereby giving parents the opportunity to be true partners in the academic an social growth of their children.
Instruction and Curriculum
The San Diego Unified School District Board of Education has formally adopted academic standards and curriculum frameworks approved by the California State Board of Education for all subject areas. District curriculum materials,
Instructional strategies and supports, professional development, and student assessments are aligned with state standards and focused on ensuring that every student has access to a high-quality, rigorous, and engaging instructional program. A range of support opportunities is available for students needing additional assistance. Boone offers a successful 90/10 Spanish Immersion program with integrated language learning and academic instruction
for native speakers of English and native speakers of another language in grades Kindergarten through Fifth Grade. The goals are to attain language proficiency and academic achievement in students’ first and second language, and cross-cultural understanding. Additionally, teachers support students in the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program at our school through differentiated instruction and academic rigor.
Visual and Performing Arts
The Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) course of study includes standards-based sequential TK-12 pathways in dance, music, theatre, and visual arts, guided by the San Diego Unified Board-approved Strategic Arts Education Plan. The California Education Code requires the arts as part of the course of study in grades 1-12, and the arts are listed among the core subjects of a well-rounded education as defined by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA, 2015). The new California Arts Standards place emphasis on artistic literacy and mastery of 21st Century Skills – collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and communication – essential areas for workplace success. Our 5th grade students receive weekly music instruction from certificated teachers specializing in band and orchestra.
One of the unique qualities of our school is the support in place to foster the academic and personal success of all students. We offer a family-oriented learning environment and a strong belief and commitment that all children can learn through rigorous, high-quality, integrated instruction. We have a wonderful, supportive community and an exceptional Parent Teacher Association (PTA) that, together with our talented teachers and staff, is committed to every student reaching and exceeding grade-level proficiency. Parent involvement is an important part of a successful school, and parents are encouraged to be a part of their child’s education at our school.
