Schools In North County


Almost every home buyer relocating to San Diego asks the same question at some point: What is the best public school system in North County San Diego? The answer is the San Dieguito Union High School District. The schools of Carmel Valley in are among some of the best around and are the top reason most people buy within the 92130 zip code. Even if you don’t have children of school age, keep in mind that when you go to sell a home, the market of prospective buyers is much better and larger in an area with top school districts.


Children in grades K-6 will attend school in the highly regarded Del Mar Union School District. Children in grades 7-12 will go to either Carmel Valley Middle School or New Canyon Crest Academy or Torrey Pines High School. Torrey Pines High School is a California Distinguished School and consistently ranks as one of the top performers in all of California. Torrey Pines High School in San Diego is a big school, with more than 2,500 students who come from neighboring areas such as Rancho Santa Fe and Del Mar. San Diego’s Torrey Pines High School has some of the highest SAT scores in the country and a majority of its students continue their education at colleges and universities around the globe. Parents take great pride in supporting their children and the local 92130 schools and as a result, these affluent neighborhoods have higher than average home prices.
