Our Community.

Point Loma is a peninsula community. Because of its proximity to the water the area has a sport fishing industry, yacht clubs, and numerous military establishments. Point Loma is known for its historic Cabrillo lighthouse, spectacular ocean views, and various recreational activities. Nearly 67,000 residents live on "the Point," with houses ranging from multi-million dollar estates to small, single-family beach bungalows. Within the area are ten elementary schools (seven public, three private), two middle schools, and one senior high school. The success of Point Loma High School is a credit to the entire community. Parents, staff, community members, and alumni dedicate much of their time and energy to support the school.

Our Programs.

Point Loma is a four year comprehensive high school serving grades 9-12 with a wide range of courses, including fine academic programs, extensive elective offerings, and excellent extracurricular opportunities. Our ethnically diverse student population, of approximately 2000 students reside primarily from the Point Loma community. Point Loma has received a six-year accreditation in May 2015, by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

Our Students.

Approximately 35 percent come from a variety of neighborhoods to participate in specialized programs, such as, the Voluntary Ethnic Enrollment Program (VEEP), the Choice Program, the Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) program or the Seminar Program.


Our Faculty.

We have over 100 fully credentialed faculty. Approximately 58 percent of our teachers have completed the equivalent of a master's degree or higher. We also have over 35 classified employees.

Our Facilities.

The compact campus is situated on 13.5 acres nestled in the Loma Portal section of Point Loma, an area of well-maintained homes and small businesses. The original school (dedicated in 1925) was first rebuilt in 1976, and a state of the art science facility was completed in 1994. Currently Point Loma High School is under a whole site modernization, which will feature a three-story, 38,000-square-foot building with a library/media center on the ground floor, 10 classrooms on the second floor, and 10 classrooms on the third floor. The building will provide an integrated assemblage of classrooms and academic support spaces, modernize an aging building, and help create an updated look and feel to the campus.
