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:  The mission of Bale Elementary School is to establish an innovative learning community in which all stakeholders are safe, nurtured, engaged, and highly valued.  This will be accomplished by incorporating science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics into our daily curriculum.  We will empower our students to be intrinsically motivated learners and highly productive members of society.

Bale School Creed:

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.
