Ballast Point is a wonderful school. I have one child in 2nd and have already had one child graduate fifth grade. Every year has been a wonderful experience. The teachers are caring and take the extra time needed to meet the needs of ALL children. I feel very fortunate to live in this school's zone.

I have twin boys who attend the autism program in this school. They are 5 now and this is their third school, and it is the best school they have ever been in. Combined with private therapies, they are thriving, growing and doing exceptionally well. It is hard to get therapies in this school district, ...  Read more
