29 Parent Reviews for Balboa Elementary School

Balboa Elementary is not a diverse school. I was an active parent volunteering and part of the PTA. But if you are not Areminian you and your child are segregated. My child's teacher ran her second grade class with unrealistic strict guidelines. At times 7-9 sheets of homework! Really? How much can a ...  Read more

This school is fantastic. As for all the parents complaining about lack of diversity, more than half of Glendale's population is Armenian. Do you expect Balboa to pick and choose its students? Do you think it's a part of a conspiracy? It's like sending your children to school in Chicago and complaining ...  Read more

I recently moved to the area and I am very unsatified with this school. There is no cultural diversity here, about 90% of the population is Armenian, they are rude and they don't speak English.

I have been a parent at Balboa Elementary school for 8 years. I didn't even research the schools when we first registered, basically it was being the closest to us that mattered. Now, I can tell it is one of the best schools in the area. Balboa has a high API score thanks to the leadership and the teachers. ...  Read more
