    "After trying two different private schools and touring many public & charter schools in our area we finally found the perfect fit. The small class size allows for individual attention. The director & teachers are creative, 'out of the box' thinkers - tapping into what makes a child 'tick' and getting the lesson through in an innovative way. This school is located right next to Balboa Park - they expose the children to this San Diego gem often. My daughter has already been to the symphony, museums, theater (twice) and the ballet all before January! I am very pleased with the school and would highly recommend it to others."

    "We searched and searched for the perfect school, and we finally found it! I have one child enrolled currently. I love the small class sizes! My child is in 5thth grade, and in addition to their amazing classroom teachers they have robotics class, a rocketry club, a PE coach, and a science class that makes science so interesting. They get to go to Mad Science too! How many elementary students get to do that?"

    "I made the mistake of sending my child to Balboa City School. Had I known what type of kids they cater to I would never have put my child there!!!!! My daughter did not receive any of the services promised to her. Once enrolled I was told she would only get the promised services if I paid hundreds of dollars per week on top of the regular tuition."

    "Great place to send students with violent tendencies, behavior problems, and emotional disorders. The the teachers do their best to control the students but they are overwhelmed. Focus is on behavior and not on academics."

    "Balboa City School is the epitome of excellence in education. My educational background is vast; i am still amazed at this outstanding school. The environment here is positive and nurturing. The principal, Administrative Director, faculty and staff work together to create this atmosphere/learning situation conducive to the highest level of academic achievement. Their commitment to the students is com -mendable. Each student receives special attention in class as well as the opportunity to receive help on a one-to-one basis. If all schools were based on the model of Balboa City School, education in our country would improve exponentially. l"
