Balboa Middle School was established in 1962 and currently serves approximately 1,250 culturally and socioeconomically diverse students. The parents, students, staff, and community support our school’s excellence and Explorer pride.

We would like to remind each and everyone that our school is more than buildings filled with classrooms, just as the student’s education is more than a mark on a report card. Balboa Middle School is the people who occupy it, and the student’s education continues with all the experiences encountered in the student’s school career. We are totally committed to maintaining a clean, safe and respectful learning environment, where students are supported by an awesome team of exceptional adults.

On behalf of the Balboa Middle School administrative team, support staff, and teachers, I welcome and encourage parents/guardians and students to join us as we continue to celebrate our academic achievements in the upcoming school year.
