Overall a really fun experience! Some teachers are amazing and really know how to connect with the students, however others can be very disconnected and not very understanding. The classes are relatively easy and there usually isn’t an unbearable amount of homework but it depends on the courses and the teachers.

I love Point Loma High School. It has a great environment for students and it allows them to be very independent. Their sports programs aren't the best but it is still fun to play, I loved playing volleyball. The only reason I would give it four stars would be because of the construction going on right now, but it is supposed to be beautiful after I graduate!
I love my school! They have great extracurriculars like women in stem, pointer press, debate, that are really fun to partake in. I really enjoy the variety of AP classes offered and the sports offered (I do cheerleading). One thing they could improve on is offering more information on colleges.
