My children had a awful experience at Ballard high school... All three. The teachers are not open minded they don't want to take time and help students not answer questions . The students are not willing to make new friends or except new kids. If you have kids that are athletes I suggest any other school but to be a Ballard bomber. The coaches will kill their dreams and only suggest community colleges. The coaches have NO connections to d1 or d2 schools or camps. I wanted to take all three of my children out mid year with all the problems I received from Ballard. Even worse when I children switched to new schools they were behind. They do Not prepare for the Act or Sat. If you wants your children to have a good high school or middle school experience with friends and receiving strong academic studies and help from teachers and if you want your children to go to college... I would never even to my worst enemy suggest Putting them in Ballard community high school in Huxley Iowa. You will not find it there, they don't want your children prepared for the future. I rather Homeschool then put my kids back in that hell hole. Their teaching staff and coaching staff is a complete Joke!!

A very good school. Great teachers. Students are incouraged to be active in the community. Good sports programs and music program. Really good expecially for such a small community.
