Hi Chandra, Torrey Highlands is a nice, quite little community, but growing. There are new homes being built. They are in the Poway School District, which a very good district in San Diego. I'll be happy to send you a link to schools if you are interested.
The commute time would be approximately 15 - 20 minutes, depending on the time of the day. State Route 56 has made it easier for the commuters since it was opened in 2005.
I know both Torrey Highlands and Sorrento Valley quite well, and would be happy to help you.
