Boonville Schools offer summer school as a free of charge program offering engaging academic learning for all students. The academic time allows students to review and apply previous learned skills as well as prepare for the upcoming school year. Students will participate in reading, writing, math and social studies and/or science specific lessons. Small group reading instruction will also be held in the elementary grades to provide students with individualized instruction based on student's need. Students will also participate in hands-on STEAM courses that promote critical thinking and problem solving. Courses may include robotics, coding, building structures, force and motion, art activities, group sports and more!
