Wondering what school is "best" is a very common question and it can be answered in many different ways. First off, what is "best" for one family/student may not be "best" for another family/student. It really depends on what it is you are trying to get out of it. While I understand that some school districts may provide better opportunities than others and be considered more highly rated, a lot of what one gets out of the school is a direct reflection of what they put into it.
I am giving a different take on your questions since many of the people below have already addressed the proper sites to visit for more information/rankings about schools in Rancho Bernardo (the Poway Unified School District.)
As a child who grew up in Rancho Bernardo and went through the Poway Unified School District from beginning to end, I can assure you that this District is incredibly solid and provides the opportunity for any child who is willing and ready to succeed. The sky really is the limit and in closing, I'd like to say that any child who has that attitude will find that whatever school they attend in Rancho Bernardo will be the "Best" school.
For additional insights into what it was like to attend any of these schools, I'd be happy to share my wonderful experiences.
