Do you have sports programs?

Yes. We have physical education every day. We also have an AAU basketball team – The Monarchs. We have won three out of the last four tournaments that we have entered.

Why do Balboa students do so well?

Balboa students are not different from students in other schools. But smaller classes, modern equipment, teachers who mentor, enable our students to love learning and school.

What about Bullies?
