Ballard School House

Ballard School is located in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley on the central coast of California in Santa Barbara County. This school and its’ picturesque red school house has been a staple of the Santa Ynez Valley since 1882. In the early days of the Santa Ynez Valley the schoolhouse was the only public building in the valley. Because of this, it has served many purposes over the years, making it a key component of the community. Located in the quaint and gorgeous little town of Ballard this public school teaches students from kindergarten to 6th grade. Ballard is home to less than 500 people and is considered a prize residential area. This past year the school was home to only 106 students. The school has a great tradition of parent involvement and her faculty is superb. The school is so committed to the development of their students that it acquired eighty new laptops so that every student in grades three through six could have their own Macbook to use for school work. Further, all classrooms are equipped with computers, projectors, document cameras and internet access. Students have access to Accelerated Reader, Reading Plus, and Study Island programs. Ballard School exemplifies all that is good about living in the Santa Ynez Valley.
