The Ballard High School PTSA is an educational enrichment and advocacy group that works to cultivate an excellent educational environment for all Ballard High Students. We do this through listening to our students and families to understand and advocate for their needs, listening to our Teachers to understand what they need in order provide the best education possible to our students, and engaging with our community through communication and fundraising activities to ensure that teachers, families and students have access to the resources, tools and support they need for the best education possible.
Help us make a great school even better!
The Ballard High School PTSA invites you to join an extraordinary PTSA that supports academics, and activities at our school, with an ongoing focus on fulfilling our mission statement.

How Can You Help?

We invite you to join the Ballard High School Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA). The PTSA directly supports the staff at BHS through a variety of activities. 100% PTA membership is a concrete indicator of parent support and is useful in interactions with the Seattle School District. Membership forms will go out in early September, or:
Attend school events and PTSA Meetings. PTSA board meetings are held monthly (see event list on home page for upcoming dates) and are open for all to attend. Meetings usually start at 7:00pm in the BHS Staff Lounge. General meetings are held 3-4 times a year, look for the dates in September, January, and Spring.
Ballard High School PTSA is not all about raising money, but of course, your financial contributions are always greatly appreciated. We have a couple of major fundraising events over the course of school year, and we put a lot of time and effort into making optimal use of donated funds. Select the link below to see some of the use we put your hard earned money to.
