Balboa has set “Sustaining a culture of continuous improvement” as its mission. As a school community, we work to incorporate the cultural and experiential contributions with which our students enter the school building; these provide foundational building blocks for learning.

We at Balboa encourage students to believe in themselves, to feel appreciated, and to discover their own value. Athletics, clubs, After-school classes, tutoring, JROTC programs also offered.
