Frank W. Ballou Senior High School offers a myriad of academic programs that allow students to explore and reach their maximum potential. These programs include Honors and AP courses, grade-level Academies, an Arts and Technology Academy for students with special needs and the 21st Century Community Learning Center.
"As a 9th grader, Daren frequently got into trouble. He struggled to stay focused and complete assignments. All of his test scores indicated that he should have been an A or B student, but his lack of organization held him back. As a 10th grader, he has shown great improvement, both behaviorally and academically. He is a more confident and engaged student, largely due to the structure OB provides. In fact, Daren was recognized as “Most Improved” in the 10th Grade Academy at our First Quarter Awards Assembly."
“I am more focused this year than last year. I’m not in the hallways as much, my grades are much better. I’m more organized and I’m able to complete more work. I feel more successful as a 10th grader.” – Daren Dorsey, 10th Grader
