    "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."

    "Beware Drugs are a major issue at this school. Councillors do not help and Principle and vice principles do nothing.....that's if you can actually get to speak to them. They do not return calls, they clearly are not that concerned or heard it all before. School police are fantastic but they have a hard task ahead of them with little support. Teachers- there are a number of Great teachers so if you can steer your kid in the right direction and keep them aware from the low life then you will be okay. Be realistic with yourself and dont be fooled in to thinking you can handle it. My advice would be to send them else where."

    "While there are problems at every school, I object to one individual's characterization of student athletics at PLHS. My son started running hurdles as a Sophomore, not as a Freshman. He received daily individual help from a coach over several frustrating weeks until he finally was able to succeed. It is grossly unfair to infer my son or any athlete receives his grades because of sports participation. I will match his class grades, PSAT, SAT or AP scores against your students or any other non-athlete students results."

    "Just be aware of a few things if your kid is interested in sports. If they do not get in as a Freshman, the are pretty much out of luck. Although at try-out they say everyone is equal whether you were on a team the previous yr or not - don't believe it. If you volunteer with the team or your kid was on a sports team the previous yr, you are pretty much guaranteed a spot. See it every year. Also, don't worry about your kids grades, if they are in sports - your kid can get away without meeting the guidelines (a wink and a nod). Got a bully in sports? He/she will be protected your kid is on a sports team. Ain't being in sports great! Don't forget, get them in as Freshmen or your are screwed."

    "I too had bullying issues at Point Loma High which were not addressed to my satisfaction by leadership. The bully was in Athletics so he was "teflon coated" and it was a nightmare for our family. Counselors are awesome and caring. We had good strong teachers."
