Cluster   

PLHS is a leader in planning for the Point Loma Cluster. Vertical teaming and unified vision is foundational in our work. We have seen dynamic results from this collaboration from Dana, to Correia, then to PLHS. Our common core work has influenced the way classes will be aligned with rigor and course offerings at all levels. Alignment of pathways include academics, career focus, languages other than English, Visual and Performing Arts.
