    Learn about BHS's Teen Health Center and supporting student mental health.  The Teen Health Center is a partnership between Swedish and BHS, providing students with medical and mental health services at our school campus. THC staff will answer pre-selected parent questions and share helpful resources for these challenging times. Hear from Mental Health Counselor Chelsea Clark  & Nurse Karen Boudour. Meet BHS Nurse Laurie Tirtanadi, who will also share her expertise.

    We'd love to have you stop by, meet and say hello. An important facet of PTSA is supporting our whole community and we look forward to seeing you, even if only virtually! Teams link to be posted soon. More info: Gloria Kruzner,

    Who We Are

    The Ballard HS PTSA promotes and supports the social, emotional, and academic well-being of all students. The work we do raises funds to run programs that provide academic opportunities, teacher and staff support, and backing for student activities. You can make a difference!
