My daughter just started kindergarten at Ballman and I am very impressed with the choices of extracurricular activities they seem to want to keep kids from sitting in front of the T.V. Also they really want to involve the parents in their child's school. My daughter's teacher is very interested in her students and the school is very clean and in a nice neighborhood. Go Ballman Bears!

I believe that Ballman is more interested in their fund raising activities PTA and what the parents of students can do for the school rather than what the school can do for students. I believe that my daughter is safe there and gets an average education. Nothing exceptional.
