Overall, my personal experience with attending Point Loma High School is one that could be simply put as very experimental. Learning to adapt to various natures, social and academic institutions, circumstances, and so forth. Yet this not to say that it is a negative attribute of Point Loma High School. I was provided a thorough level of challenge and rigor, whilst being able to manage my at-home life and student responsibilities. However, I do firmly believe that the encouragement for student-led activities, agendas and curriculum ought to be pushed further beyond our current standards.

Point Loma High School is an exciting school to be a part of. There are many school rallies to take part in as well as activities to be more involved with the school. There are also substantial amounts of clubs and sports to be a part of, each being unique to its members. One of the most admiring parts of Point Loma High School is its teachers. A large portion of teachers are dedicated towards helping students meet academic benchmarks, develop a passion for certain subjects, as well as get out of their comfort zone. There are a few issues with vaping and cheating, which can also be considered as common nationwide problems. With a change in the academic system as well as stricter enforcement on drug use, Point Loma High could become one of the best schools available.
I am a senior at Point Loma High and I have loved my experience. There is lots of school spirit at PLHS, and my favorite part about the school is going to sports games and participating in school spirit days. I know that there are many clubs and organizations to get involved with, so you can really create your own experience. I have made many friends I know I will have for life! The academics here are really a hit or miss. We have some AWESOME teachers, but we also have some really bad ones. Most teachers will go out of their way to help you as long as you create a solid relationship with them and ask for help. GO POINTERS!
