    "LJHS is a great school with dedicated students, parents, and teachers. Unfortunately, I am finding increasingly that the new principal, Dr. Podhorsky, is driving the campus into the ground. He is creating a huge divide between teachers/students vs. his administration. Everyone on campus is pointing the finger at him, and he is not being held accountable for the pattern of constant on-campus drama and chaos he has created in under a year."

    "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."
