    "Great school due to the teachers, students, parent and alumni support. Principal change was long overdue."

    "The best if not one of the best high schools in California!!!!! I'm a proud alumni and so glad my daughter will be an incoming freshmen(class of 2017). Great teachers, counselors, and athletic staff. Curriculum is all college prep and teaching atmosphere has always been to help students reach their ultimate goal of getting into the college of their choice."

    "La Jolla High is a great school for most students. It is an exceptional school rated against other public schools, but is not a private school. Students that do best here are the students that do best in college and the workplace; self-motivated, creative, dedicated and hardworking individuals. This is not the school for students who need to be coddled. I have had two very different children go through the system. Each got out of their experience exactly what they put in. Both got into their top college choices. One had an IEP and had the BEST support possible. Zero complaints there. Warning, there are a few cooky teachers that will be there forever - if your student is stuck with one of them, they will gain valuable experience in skills that have nothing to do with academics - such as patience, self-advocance and flexibility. All in all it is a great school, but if your child is a "glass half empty" type, or you are a parent who is wound tight, private school may be your home-sweet-home."

    "La Jolla High was once a very great school indeed, but recently its standards have been much less than satisfying. A teacher was suspended for slapping kids last school year and many teachers have said that are less than motivated about teaching (understandable due to budget cuts and students who were less than willing to learn and have no interest in academics). Recently, CST tests had proved that LJHS have been experiencing a great drop in its standards."

    "I love La Jolla, and it is unfortunate that we have to pull our daughter out of LJHS because she has not found the help she needed with her mild ADD. She has an IEP that was always ignored by the teachers. Teachers are good but don't care to help students, only cater to self motivated ones, which she was not. It is so hard to contact most teachers and counselors. Parents are involved in fundraising and other events, but when it comes to academics you would see 3 parents visiting the school!"
