Balboa Gifted/High Ability Magnet Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

Arrogant principal, rude office staff & harsh teachers! Pulled out our son after 2 horrible years. He started hating school, resisted learning & begged us to go back to our home school. He was also bullied on the playground several times.

This school was great for all three of my children, which all had different needs. All tested gifted in very different ways. Some times were more challenging, but I know it would have been worse elsewhere. Parents reading this need to understand this is a school for gifted children and the pace and methodology will reflect that. If your child hasn't been really accurately evaluated, and in turn, accurately recommended for this school, he/she will find it difficult. The pace is much faster and while there is less homework than other schools (speaking from experience), it is more challenging. If they are not up for it, it will feel like homework all the time with no free time. Having been at several schools, bullying here is by far the least and those seen as the smartest are more revered than shunned. The Boster/PTA is outstanding and second to none. PARTICIPATE and you will see why. The more we work together, the more richly rewarded the kids are. One PTA mtg attendance here is like 3 elsewhere. Much better participation. One thing to note, this school has the highest API score of any school because its entire student population is gifted, unlike other schools where its only partial. Having said that, there are more students at similar pace and understanding, leaving fewer kids behind and having them MORE than ready for junior high, even high school, as credited by my oldest, who is in high school.

My child is getting ready to graduate after being there since Grade 1. I can say that our experience here different greatly year to year depending on who his teacher was. For two years he had absolutely incredible teachers and for the rest he had terrible teachers. It just depends who you get. There is a lot of bullying that goes on at this school, a LOT of mean kids, and a lot of students who are loaners, who can't find friend groups and the staff does nothing to try to help these students. My child still hasn't made any friendships, unfortunately. Academics are great but as time has gone on, I've realized that isn't everything. I wish I chose a different school for my child and wasn't caught up on reputation.

My son has been at this school for three years so far and has had an amazing experience. It feels like a private school with the wide variety of experiences and high quality education he's received. Not only has he learned a lot, but he has made some wonderful friends. This school is a wonderful community and we are so happy to be a part of it.
