In a recent article from The San Diego Union Tribune, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Clarkson stated, “I challenge educators, parents, students, and community leaders to continue the hard work needed to help every student graduate… and to make a special effort to raise graduation rates for English learners and Latino and African American students.”

“It is our mission to provide a diverse and educational environment that promotes high academic standards, cultivates creativity, and builds the skills necessary for college, career, and civic life.”

This mission affects the way our teachers and staff work here at Balboa School. In San Diego county alone, about 80% of students graduate after four years of high school. While this number may seem high, we continually strive to better our staff and students to contribute positively to the statistics. At Balboa School we help each other for the common goal: to learn, grow, and succeed.

It is important to instill the mindset of never stop learning, which can aid students in the right direction when decisions are made about their future. Our college-preparatory curriculum, including honors and AP courses, will challenge high school students and prep them for their next destination in their academic career.
