best private school in san diego

Balboa School is one the best private schools in San Diego. We are a K-12 school, providing accredited education programs from Kindergarten to Grade 12. Rules, expectations, and lessons are well communicated to students and parents. We strive to create positive learning experiences that encourage students to actively engage with the curriculum and work towards mastery of academic goals.

Small Class Sizes

We know that each student is unique. It has been our experience that given the right motivation and environment, each student can achieve academic success well beyond traditional expectations. In order to foster greater growth, our students are taught in small class sizes, where teachers will be able to give personal attention to the needs of each student. Students will also be fully engaged in learning activities in the classroom.

Fine Arts – Music and Art

Balboa School offers multiple art and music classes to bring out the creativity in every student. Through the study of fine arts, our students will also cultivate diligence, patience, and better self-expression. Being in close proximity to the California Center for the Arts, our students are given many opportunities to showcase their talent and hard work through performances and art workshops.

STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths

In order to prepare students to be successful in a global society, technology is integrated into our core curriculum. We offer accredited STEM classes, including coding/programming, and we have a dedicated Robotics Club to engage students in a more hands-on experience. Students have the opportunity to engage in virtual science labs through the adoption of Discovery Techbooks for all science courses.

Athletic Programs

At Balboa School, we believe in providing a holistic education for our students. Through our athletic programs, we train our students to be team-oriented athletes while teaching them the values of a modern education, such as hard work, self-discipline, teamwork, and time management. Balboa School is NCAA-certified, allowing all student athletes the opportunity to receive athletic scholarships.


Balboa School is a fully accredited private school in San Diego that has been teaching students from across the county, including GATE and gifted students, for over twenty years. Students at Balboa School are challenged while being provided with the guiding support necessary for high achievement. We are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and AdvancED, the world’s largest education organization.
