Loyal Heights Elementary was a great school when I was a kid. It's a public school located in Ballard area. It's grades kindergarden through fiftth. I went here for all 6 years and loved it. The teachers are nice and make learning fun, and might even teach you in a grade higher level to understand middle school elements which helped me out big time. The field trips are fun and at a fair price, and there are also end of the year suprises for you, including field day and a carnival. If you live in Ballard area and if your child is ready for a public school to meet great teachers and friends, I recommend Loyal Heights!
