  • My child has been attending Del Mar for his 3rd year. I had serious reservations about transferring out of the school district. He has a learning disability which has progressed and he is overcoming it. The reason I chose him to stay is because of the teachers. The teachers are always available for the children who want the help. In the past 2 years they have earned my respect and went a long way in changing my view of this school, and its stride to rise to one of the better High Schools. However the athletics program at this school has fallen to a level below all school in the area. In some cases they are at the bottom 2% when it comes to coaching and program stability. For instance this year the football team had a new head coach (Jason Campbell). He did lead the team to a play off birth, but in doing that his program was one of luck and hope. None of his players had a (Play book) There practice started later than any of the other teams in their Division so they had less time to practice. There were no skills training, no conditioning, etc… The football program was more a fly by the seat of their pants then a laid out plan. Football like any other sport is not only a game but a lesson itself for life. This is where we want to start teaching these children, how everything has a set pattern and results are achieved from this.
    There other sports are in desperate need of updated equipment and training tools just to keep from having injuries. The scholastics have come a long way and continue to move forward. The athletics program even with new coaches needs to have an actual athletics director step in and start setting standards and hold these leaders of our children accountable.

  • Del Mar High School was an excellent school in the early 1980's. I enjoyed going to school there.
