We are the heart of the University City community of San Diego. We are surrounded by world-class institutions that provide resources and partnerships for our students including our neighbors University of California-San Diego and Biotech Beach, the thriving hub of the region's biotechnology industry as well as high-tech giants like Qualcomm wireless and technology leaders.
Our school is diversity in action. Our student body of nearly 2,000 students come from a wide range of socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds, and students come from all over the district to take advantage of our great programs. We offer a broad-based, comprehensive high school program.
One of our greatest strengths is our staff of experienced, well-trained, and highly qualified professionals who have dedicated themselves to offer one of the best-quality high school programs available Our staff’s efforts have been validated by our standardized test scores, including the Academic Performance Index (API), that have consistently exceeded both district and state averages.
