My daughter completely loves this school. The teachers truly care about the children. Since we have moved here from belton school district my daughter has gone from pretty much failing to close to be a straight A student. The teachers want the children to succeed in both school and life.

Ball high is diverse and totally askew. It seems like a "lockdown" environment but maybe it needs to be. Who ruined this school for our students? Something must have happened prior to 2004. I have 2 sons who are very bright and talented. One dropped out in his senior year and got a GED.

Last I heard, the Superintendent has cleaned out the subpar teachers through a reduction in force, discipline has been tremendously better, and the school looks a whole lot cleaner. Last year's valedictorian went to Yale. Hard to argue results like that. Give me a high school with perfect kids.

Ball High actually has some amazing teachers and you can learn a lot. Yes, there are some poor teachers but when you get into the advance classes the quality improves greatly. STEM, however, is a joke. The teachers are brand new and don't know what they are teaching.

Are you kidding me? This is a great school if you just stepped out of the Bronx or one of those parts of Detroit that even the cops don't go to at night. You walk in the building and suddenly feel like you just stepped into the movie Dangerous Minds or some of the others like that.
