The elementary program is designed for optimal achievement, achieving sophisticated language development through hands on activities, low stress classrooms, high student involvement and achievement. Hands on activities in science, technology, engineering combine with classical studies in mythology, writing and literature.  Students attend computer lab daily and learn essential word processing and computer skills.


Balboa School offers a college-preparation program for students from all over the world. Located adjacent to California Center for the Arts in beautiful Escondido, students are able to experience many of the cultural opportunities and attractions of the downtown area. Our classrooms surround a lovely central courtyard full of native plants and flowering shrubs. A new student center has been constructed in the middle of campus, providing a fun and relaxing space for students to unwind and socialize. Balboa School’s intimate setting fosters the creation of strong and lasting personal relationships between students and staff. This connection is something that is so often missing on large, traditional campuses.
