Point Loma High School is celebrating its newly completed site modernization that includes a new 38,000-square-foot classroom building with a library/media center.
An event June 6 to mark the occasion at the Chatsworth Boulevard campus brought together Principal Kelly Lowry, staff members, students, alumni and San Diego Unified School District representatives a week before the end of the 2021-22 school year.
The three-year modernization project, the school’s largest since it first opened in 1925, features the new three-story building, renovation of two classroom buildings and upgrades to the school’s athletic facilities, including new practice fields.

The new building includes a library/media center on the first floor, 10 classrooms on both the second and third floors and a student quad. The gold-painted final steel beam placed for the building in February 2020 is imprinted with the names of dozens of past, present and future Point Loma High students.
School parking capacity was increased with the reconfiguration of the Clove Street parking lot, which features a secure visitors entrance to the campus.
Other work included landscape, hardscape and technology upgrades, secure perimeter fencing and more.
The $58.7 million construction cost was funded by San Diego Unified’s Propositions S and Z, local bond measures approved by voters to repair, renovate and upgrade schools.
