Open Quote We moved to Birdsboro three years ago and have had children in Birdsboro Elementary, D. B. Middle School, and D. B. High School. I never thought I could say this about any school, but the three schools my children have attended here have been a dream come true. The Daniel Boone School District is amazing. My elementary and high school age children both LOVE their schools. The teachers and staff are very caring, helpful, and enthusiastic. Even the office administrators are a joy to deal with. Parent-Teacher communication is wonderful. Education and special programs are excellent. The facilities are nice, clean, and mostly new. They have a great security program, including security locks on doors, and guards at the high school. The Daniel Boone schools have far exceeded our expectations, and we could not be happier.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
