La Jolla High School (LJHS), located in coastal San Diego, serves approximately 1650 students in a grade 9-12 comprehensive public high school within the San Diego Unified School District.
Each year approximately 90 percent of graduating seniors enter universities or colleges, with a significant number of students attending Ivy League schools, out-of-state institutions, and the University of California and California State University systems.
LJHS prides itself on providing a positive, well-ordered climate conducive to learning and has been cited as one of the top high schools in the nation (Newsweek and US News and World Report magazines). La Jolla High is also recognized as a California Distinguished School, and as an Achievement via Individual Determination (AVID) School of Distinction. In addition, LJHS was the first public high school west of the Mississippi to earn a chapter in the Cum Laude Society.
