A Message from the Balboa Admin Team

Hello Balboa students and families! 

We are excited to welcome you to this 2019/20 school year!

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 and new memories. This year we are again expecting an enrollment of approximately 1,100 students. Although this is large student body, our Balboa staff is committed to helping you through 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. Open our newsletter to see a list of all of the exciting clubs offered last year to see that there is something for every student. New clubs are also formed each year based on student input and requests.

We welcome parent involvement at Balboa. The partnership between parents, students and staff is the key to success of our entire school community. Parents, please ask about volunteer opportunities throughout the year. We appreciate all the help we can get!



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