Our school features a great mix of diversity. Located on the southwestern edge of the district's borders, our families come from all over the world, including Mexico, Russia, Iraq, Sudan, the Congo and the Philippines. With this diverse student body, Balboa Elementary offers unparalleled cross-cultural learning. Although many of our students are working on their English language fluency, at the same time, our entire student body is engaged in a challenging and academically rigorous curriculum.

At Balboa, we know that students welcome challenge and rise to meet it successfully, given the right guidance and tools.With the implementation of the Common Core in our classrooms, it is our goal to develop 21st Century International Students Ready to Compete in a Global Economy.

We focus on the development of essential skills in reading, writing, critical thinking, public speaking, computer applications, mathematical/scientific reasoning and problem solving. To ensure the success of our students we have programs supporting English language fluency.

Our arts program includes an instrumental music program for 4th and 5th grade students, an after-school Art Club throughout the year, a school wide VAPA grant, as well as, a variety of art curriculum and performance opportunities offered throughout all grade-levels.

Family involvement is highly encouraged with a variety of activities designed to welcome and include family support. We have two monthly events for families: Coffee with the Principal and Family Friday. Grade level presentations to families are held three times a year.. Families may also join the PTA and parents/guardians are encouraged to volunteer in classrooms and school events. We are truly a family at Balboa International Baccalaureate and Humanities Preparatory!

We invite you to come see us in action!
