We strive to create a community built on success and responsibility.
We will provide a safe place where students can develop through positive interactions with students and teachers.
We strive to help students become problem solvers, goal setters and dream achievers.
Parent involvement is an essential component of student success. Parents are expected to be an integral part of their child’s education. Our PTA is an active group and supports the staff and students in multiple ways. The commitment and devotion to our community crosses many generations. Current staff members were former Boevers students and several of our parents were former Boevers students. Every day we work together building into the lives of our future.
Boevers Elementary is accredited by the Oklahoma State Department of Education and AdvancED. Its accreditation process, involving parents, teachers and administrators at each site, is considered a model for other school districts. Boevers is a Title I School.
Our team continues to refine and study our school wide goals in the areas of reading, math, and Character Counts. The desired result of these three goals is to improve teaching practices and student learning in the specified areas. You can also visit the State’s site at www.oknca.com.
