Message from the Principal

Hello Balboa students and families,

Whether you are brand new to Balboa Middle School or have been in the family for many years, we are excited that you will be with us and for the prospects of another fabulous year.

I am sure you will agree, or soon discover, that Balboa is an awesome place to learn.  It is a school which prides itself on being clean, safe, respectful, and of the highest academic caliber.

As a newer member to the team, I can tell you that all of these things are true!

We have an exciting year ahead.  I hope that you had a chance to relax and have some fun this summer.  As you return to school, and move to the next grade, you will be challenged academically and socially.    If you give school the focus it deserves, you will be rewarded with new knowledge, new friends, new memories, and more support than you have ever had.

This year we are again expecting an enrollment of approximately 1,175 students.  Although this is a large student body, Balboa staff is committed to helping you through the middle school years and preparing you for success in the future.  Please take advantage of our clubs, athletics, student groups, counseling supports, and positive peer relations to help you on this journey. 

We welcome parent involvement at Balboa. The partnership between parents, students and staff is the key to all of our success.  Parents, please look for opportunities throughout the year to get involved. You will not regret it!  Take care.

Dr. Wade
