Be A Learning Champion Here!


Balch Elementary School SignageHello my name is Diane Ferreira and I am so excited and enthusiastic about serving the Balch Elementary School as principal.  The Balch is a wonderful school that educates over 300 students in grades 1-5.   Our school has a diverse student population with students of various nationalities and backgrounds learning together.  Our teachers work hard to ensure academic excellence and to make a difference in the lives of their students.  Students are held to high expectations academically, behaviorally, and socially. 

Our wonderful PTO sponsors many events and activities that enrich the experiences of our students and families.  Please consider volunteering to be a part of this active group.  The Balch School Council is a group of teachers, parents, and administrators who develop a School Improvement Plan to enhance the learning experiences and opportunities at the Balch.

All of our students are considered “learning champions”.  Our motto is to Be A Learning Champion Here!
