Student Art Clubs

Arts education at La Jolla High is not confined to the classroom. Students may participate in clubs which encompass a variety of creative interests. Including Dance, Drama, Filmmaking, Foreign Film, Hip Hop, and Improv. 


The Theater department ljhstheatre.com offers several performances annually with shows ranging from uproarious comedy to taut drama and auditions are open to all students.

Our award-winning Improv Group performs and competes with other local high schools each spring.

The annual AirBand competition, sponsored by the ASB is always a huge success and sells out both performances.
