I presume you are referring to Booz Allen Hamilton off of Friars. The best neighborhood with good schools in the area is by far Mission Hills.
FYI There are 6 new listings this week in Mission Hills: http://www.san-diego-houses.com/idx/community/mission-hills/
Good Luck and Welcome to San Diego!!
Bay Park (west area of 92117 and 92110) and Mt. Soledad (North East 92109 and South East 92037), are both right off the I-5, which is very short, probably 5-10 minutes once your wife is on the Freeway to Mission Hills. Plenty of schools, private, public and Magnet from which to choose, but this is true throughout most of the county. Prices are right around a million in Mt. Soledad, depending on the view, usually, and can get more than a million. There are definitely some nice places under a million in Mt. Soledad. Bay Park is less expensive, again the view matters. Bay Park is pretty much as convenient as it gets for getting on the freeway for your wife's commute.
Clairemont (92117) is also great for families, and prices are around 450-600k. It is East of Bay Park, but Bay Park is only about a half mile East to West, then Clairemont starts just up the hill. UTC (92122) is just north of Bay Park/Clairemont and requires a bit longer on the freeway, but this community is amazing and mostly around 600-900K.
Excellent parks and rec centers fill the area. Also, minutes away from San Diego's best family attractions, the beach, Zoo, and Sea World. They are very affordable for So Cal residents. Three malls, Costco, Target, tons of family and trendy restaurants are all within a 5-10 minutes.
I have two little girls, 3 and 5, and know a ton about this area. Feel free to call even you want to use a different realtor. Good luck finding your new happy home!

I live here in Mission Hills. I LOVE it. I bought a beautiful 1929 Spanish Home 6 years ago with an amazing view. I'm a La Jolla native, but bought up here. It's the BEST location for everything and YES, there are great schools and lots to do. I know you have a ton of agents all over you with comments and links, etc., but I just wanted to say hello and I hope you find a wonderful home up here in Mission Hills. It's fantastic.
Good luck, David!

Misssion Hills is a fabulous neighborhood filled with charming homes. The best schools in San Diego however are in areas like Carmel Valley, Poway area, and La Jolla.
I would suggest checking out Point Loma but that is rather costly....Areas like Scripps Ranch and Tierrasanta are not too far - and both areas have decent schools...
Please feel free to contact me direclty with any other questions or needs...

As you can see you are going to get many offers to assist you in a purchase. There are three pieces of advice we can offer to give you an edge in selecting an agent from those posting on Trulia:
1. Hold your mouse over their picture. It will show you how many questions they have answered and how many thought they were helpful answers. The number of questions answered will give you an idea of how long they have been posting answers on Trulia.
2. Every agent here should have a profile, you can find it by clicking on their picture. Read them to see who you feel you can identify with.
3. Not every agent has experience with $1M properties. Narrow your selection to 3 or 4 agents and reach out to them and set up a time for an interview. Make sure you are 100% comfortable with who you select.
Know that the inventory of homes has been tight in San Diego since January, it may take time to find the perfect home for you and your family.
Best of luck and we hope this helps,

I worked for BAH for a number of years here in San Diego after getting out of the Marine Corps and before getting into real estate. The Booz Allen office is actually located in the heart of Mission Valley which is very centrally located in San Diego. Do you know if she will be hoteling or working client site? If she will be client site it may be more beneficial to focus your search around their location. I would love to assist you in your search! Let me know if I can help.

When were you looking to move? The best idea is to do a site visit to schools. As Hector mentioned, we cannot comment on this as professionals. We can provide you with the information, and tell you the best practices we have seen over the years. Best Wishes,
Broker/Owner, Balboa Park Realty
As REALTORS, we cannot comment on schools because it is considered steering, here are some websites so you can do the proper research:
If you are not already working with a REALTOR, I would love to work for you.
