    "Point Loma High School graduates many students that go on to the University of California System, Stanford and other great universities. There is an active parent program which provides support to the Administration. The campus continues to make improvements including recent approval of a master plan for new buildings and sports facility. The football field was recently renovated and a new workout facility was constructed.The PL Baseball field (actually at Dana) is being renovated for synthetic turf and will be ready for the next Season. Former PL Alum and MLB Perfect Game pitcher David Wells is now the head coach. There is great school spirit and a wonderful scholastic program."

    "My son attended PLHS. He struggled at the beginning, but I always found that teachers, counselors and staff were responsive as long as we communicated what our needs were -- no one just steps in. He found that if he worked hard, was respectful to the teachers and looked for opportunities there were plenty of great things to be found there. The students that don't do well are not putting themselves out front, and their parents don't participate by volunteering and getting to know the teachers -- always a big mistake. PLHS is crowded and has a lot of budget issues, but if you work for them they will work for you and your child. A relatively new principal (2013) is helping things as well. A large number of students are bussed into this school and their parents either cannot, or will not, participate so if you have time and a few extra dollars you can make a huge impact here. We felt it gave our son a terrific foundation for college."

    "I have to say, this school is one of the worst schools in the san diego unified school district."

    "It is impossible to get any communication from the school. The counselors don't return phone calls nor emails and are rarely in the office. The principal, vice principal and technical staff never respond to emails or calls and are never in the office to talk to. Our son had no Spanish teacher for the first 6 weeks and we couldn't get him moved into any other class. Very frustrating trying to deal with this school. I'm not happy with the quality of some of the teachers either. Not a good experience so far for a freshman student."

    "Reading the comments about athletes. I have not found it to be true that your child can't make it if they didn't start as a freshman; parents don't volunteer; or that grades don't matter if you are an athlete. Maybe in other sports, but not girls volleyball. You try out every year and every year you can be replaced by someone better. Volleyball is very competitive at all schools, and it's this way everywhere. I do agree with the person complaining about how hard it is to get in touch with counselors. It's near impossible. After weeks of emailing and calling and leaving messages with everyone my husband finally took time out of his day to walk into the counseling office so we could get an appointment with our son's counselor. That appointment was supposed to be today, but our son was never called out of class. Very disappointing. There are some really exceptional teachers at PL. If you can excel you will do well here."
