Point Loma High School Principal Bobbie Samilson has announced she will retire at the end of the school year, ending a nine-year stint as the school’s point woman.

Samilson announced her decision in an email to school staff, leading to surprise for many.

Appointed to lead the 2,200 student campus in 2004, Samilson has overseen the continuance of the most effective programs at PLHS and the addition of numerous changes, improvements and new programs at the school that have resulted in markedly increased test scores in recent years.

Samilson has been a highly visible leader on the Pointer campus, attending numerous evening and weekend events to support students.

In addition, the campus has seen the completion of significant construction in recent years under Proposition S funding, including a new classroom building, weight room, music center and a recently dedicated motion pictures industries facility for students.

A new stadium entrance and building with ticket booth, snack bar and restroom facilities is expected to open within months.

Meetings to begin the search process for Samilson’s replacement began May 15, a meeting that involved school staff and parents.

San Diego Unified School District superintendent Bill Kowba also announced his retirement recently.
