• "We Believe in Bale!"

    Bale Elementary is named for Hardin Bale, who served as a school Board member from 1932-41. Mr. Bale was a well-known Little Rock businessman and civic leader; in 1912 he formed the Shoemaker-Bale Company, which was a Ford dealership. In 1948, the business evolved into Bale Chevrolet Company. The West Little Rock dealership is still operated by members of the Bale family.

    Bale Elementary School encourages students to make good choices and exhibit strong character traits by having high expectations for everyone on campus. Bale Elementary uses the AR State Standards to prepare each student to be college and career ready in math, literacy and science.  

    Our school mascot is the BOBCATS, which stands for: Believing Our Boys and girls Can Achieve Tremendous Success! 

    Our School Mission:  At Bale Elementary, we are committed to providing a safe, creative, and challenging learning environment which empowers the academic, emotional, and social growth of all learners.  We will prepare our 21st Century learners for college and career options by building effective relationships, engaging in a relevant and rigorous curriculum, and reflecting on our daily practices.
