A Message from the Balboa Admin Team

Welcome Balboa Students and Families!

We hope you had a memorable summer and are ready for a great school year! First off, we’d like to welcome back our new Assistant Principals, Mrs. Branstetter and Mr Gaeta, who are returning “home” to their Balboa Family after a few years of being away. Mrs. Branstetter comes to us from E.P. Foster where she was the STEM Coordinator of their Magnet program. Tomas Gaeta comes to us from DATA where he was a Counselor.  We’d also like to welcome our new Office Assistant, Mrs. Aparicio, our new Teacher Librarian, Mr. Cromie, as well as 6 new faces to our teaching staff! Give a big Balboa welcome to Mrs. Bouwman, Mrs. Dudley, Mrs. Marks, Mrs. McKay, Mr. Neidiffer and Mrs. Solis!

This year is going to be an amazing one! We all hope that you will take advantage of the great opportunities we have to get involved at Balboa! We have a broad range of extracurricular activities that will enhance your middle school experience. Parent involvement is also integral to the success of our students and our school so we encourage you to join our PTO and become a part of our school community. Our first meeting is Sept 6th at 6pm in the Library! We can't wait to meet all of you and we know this is going to be a great year!

Balboa is proud to be a Clean, Safe and Respectful place to learn!
