With the departure of current principal Hans Becker, members of the Point Loma High School community were encouraged to participate in the selection of the school's next educational leader. 

These stakeholders will be playing a vital role in determining who will be named to lead the school according to the San Diego Unified School District. 

School staff and parents were asked to indicate their interest in the process by contacting vice principal Dana Tolomeo ([email protected]). Respondents were asked to be available to participate in virtual candidate interviews scheduled to be held June 22 and 23 via Zoom. 

In addition, a Leadership Input Survey was available online asking staff and community members their hopes and dreams for students at PLHS. Also sought were desired leadership characteristics, skills and expertise of candidates by surveyed persons.

The new principal is expected to be named by June 30. The successful candidate will oversee the remaining phases of the school's ongoing complete site modernization program as well as the 100th anniversary of PLHS in 2025.

PLHS had a great tradition of artistic and creative programs for students in cinema as literature with trips to film festivals in San Diego, Los Angeles, and Palm Springs and a Musical Theatre program where students learned to be artistic, creative, innovative and mastered many performance skills they never thought they ever courld. We need more programs like these for every students to explore talents they never knew they ever had. Also, the principal should encourage more guest speakers for a variety of areas - doctors, lawyers, reserachers, businesspeople, artists, musicians, filmmakers, etc. These things encourage love of education and play a huge part in the future of our students. The principal should be a leader in these areas.
