My daughter completely loves this school. The teachers truly care about the children. Since we have moved here from belton school district my daughter has gone from pretty much failing to close to be a straight A student. The teachers want the children to succeed in both school and life. Best school yet. Awesome extracurricular classes great business classes. I highly recommend this school.

I am currently in my 4th year workin at Ball and absolutely love everythuing about it! The choices that are offered to the students are incredible, you can't get what Ball offers at many other schools and the pride and spirit are spectacular...can't wait until my first born child attends Ball!

I was shocked the first time I visited Ball High! Many students are causing behavior problems in class which makes it hard for the teachers to teach and the students to learn at their full potential..All students are also marked "absent" if they are 1 minute late to a class. There is no time to use the restroom between classes and teachers are reluctant to excuse students during class. If a student is "late" the parent is called and informed that they were not in school. Very confusing. Students have no lockers or individual text books. All text books are kept in the classroom, Homework is very rarely given. A police force is employed and they have a much needed teen clinic and a great psychologist. We moved from an exemplary school district, so maybe I am biased. But I do feel students should have lockers, books, supplies, a positive learning environment, and some rules that don't promote bladder problems. If the students with behavior/attitude problems don't want to learn or respect the teachers and other students I suggest they receive 3 warnings, then be placed together in the same class. There are many schools in GISD. I wonder how the funding breaks down.....

Ball high is diverse and totally askew. It seems like a "lockdown" environment but maybe it needs to be. Who ruined this school for our students? Something must have happened prior to 2004. I have 2 sons who are very bright and talented. One dropped out in his senior year and got a GED. The other is a junior and doesn't seem to like it much either. He had also stated he wants to drop out. I don't think he would pass a GED, he can barely spell much less write with correct grammar. But this boy has so much potential. I think this school has everything "bad" in the world that innocent kids are exposed to. Yes, they will be exposed sooner or later, but this school is a real shocker! Yes Galveston has the beaches, but it also has the ghettos along with "dirty deeds done dirt cheap"! Where does the tax money go? My taxes are high! But there are no text books per student, no lockers, minimal classrooms and horrible dirty restrooms!. Do these students even get to sit in a chair at a desk? It looks like a prison, but maybe it has to. It has it's own police department! WARNING!! Go somewhere else before the damage is done. May God have mercy on this school.

Last I heard, the Superintendent has cleaned out the subpar teachers through a reduction in force, discipline has been tremendously better, and the school looks a whole lot cleaner. Last year's valedictorian went to Yale. Hard to argue results like that. Give me a high school with perfect kids. Not going to happen.
