The Poway School District is probably the most sought after in San Diego, but there are plenty of good schools in the county!

Many times when agents are asked the type of question that you asked, the agents respond in based on their life experiences and preferences. That is nice, but it may not be that same as your preferences. Many years ago before we purchased our first home, we asked a realtor who was popular in the area to help us find something in one community we liked. He in turn tried to persuade us to move in the area that he was most familiar with. He was trying to talk us into a condo....which in his area were at a price level similar to single family residences where we wanted to look. We dumped him and found a place where we wanted to be and it was absolutely the right decision.
Check out Cory's links and do your homework. Your research will pay you back in better results and decisions when you relocate.
Al great questions and needed to get answered when one is relocating, especially when you have children. As for our fellow agents, answering your questions based on the parameters you listed could be construed as "steering", which is illegal in the US. Steering is a violation of the federal Fair Housing Act.
As for direction and places for you to look to get answers, Cory La Scala has it all the right links. These are the same we use for prospective buyers.
Best of luck,

I noticed several of the responses are referencing different public school districts, but you might want to also look at some of the private schools in San Diego like Mission Bay Monessori Academy(Mission Bay), Bonita Country School (Bonita), Academy of Our Lady of Peace (North Park) & The Childrenâ€™s School(La Jolla). If you want to provide me with some additional detail of the other amenities that you are looking for could provide more information on pricing and availability.
Please feel free to call or email me.

The neighborhoods within that district are extremely safe, and they have fantastic value.
