To learn more about our school and to visit classrooms, please attend our Open House at Springfield Ball Charter School 2530 E.

The mission of the Ball Charter School is to create a safe, nurturing environment that fosters learning through the development of high quality, research-based academic programs, attention to the learning needs of individual children, and the involvement of parents in their children's education. The school was created with the intention of being a laboratory-type school which was given the flexibility to try new instructional strategies, staff development models, and curriculum modifications that could be evaluated for effectiveness and possible duplication in other schools in the district.  Some of those unique offerings include flexibly-grouped or multi-age classrooms, student-choice elective content for students in grades 6-8, and K-8 Spanish, art, and technology.
