    "There are some teachers who care about students and students are friendly to each other. Unfortunately, this is the type of school where you have to do online research to get clear answers. There are no regular or intermittent email newsletters or onotifications to parents. My child's counselor is always frazzled, abrasive, and dismissve. She has been this way since his first day of school when we met her. After that meeting and on another ocassion when she met my husband it was apparent this is her method of surviving with her "caseload" of students. Anyway, if you are thinking about sending your child to this school, you really have to stay on your toes and communicate with everyone as frequently as possible or your student's college opportunities may dwindle. You must advocate for your child and they have to learn how to advocate for themselves beacuse once you get a taste of the culture of nonchalance and factory-type processing of students at PLHS, you realize not to count on a partnership between parents and school administrators, counselors, etc. They're too busy to even answer emails."

    "I am a former PLHS graduate. C/O 1997. I loved my peers and clubs that I belonged to. I had several stand out teachers that really pushed me as a student to think critically, problem solve and be proud of my work. Many of my HS graduate friends went on to UC colleges. I didn't have the money because I had to pay my way through college, perhaps there was ways around it. I ended up at a community college for a few yers, got accepted to CSU San Francisco and ended up going to the Art Institute of CA here in San Diego. I learned many valuable skills at PLHS and believe the curriculum prepared me for college."

    "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."
