As a former Ballico-Cressey School Board member and the parent of two children who graduated from Ballico-Cressey school,I have only the highest regard for the administrators and the entire staff at the school.Being a small rural school with a diverse population brings with it many advantages and disadvantages.The staff has managed to combine high academics with character and sportsmanship.In an age of constant testing,it is tempting to only 'teach to the test.' The School Board and staff continues to provide a well-rounded education.The enthusiasm of the parents and community shows they must be on the right track. The number of scholar/athletes from Ballico-Cressey is a testamonial to the efforts of all involved.If you are currently looking for a school for your children,I think you will be impressed by the professionalism exhibited by the entire staff.

I fell in love with the Ballico Cressey School District the first day that I visited. It's a small school atmosphere with the best teaching staff that a school could have. I am extremely impressed with the schools continued API growth. Ballico has the repuation at the local high school of having the most prepared and academically advanced students in the area. The students are also known for their tremendous amount of respect and good behavior. I now have my third child at Ballico and am confident that she will be more than ready for high school Thanks Mr. Wear and Staff! and Welcome back Mr. Gonzales I know you will do great!

Ballico Elementary is a small rlural school with plenty of heart. There are activities for students, sports programs, qualified teachers and staff and a strong Board of Trustees to oversee the school. Class sizes are good and there is plenty of parent participation.
