Open Quote My daughter got into Balboa in the 3rd grade and is now a 5th grader! We LOVE this school and am sad it's her last year. She has thrived since going there. She is challenged academically, but not overwhelmed. They have so many wonderful activities the kids get to participate in and the teachers are stellar. Like I said we love it there and are very thankful our daughter got in there when we did! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
