We are moving to San Diego in October and looking for a decent place to live. We would like to be in a good school district and around Indian families with kids.

Will appreciate your suggestions.

Hi Rajesh

I am in the same boat. Moving to san diego and looking to rent a place in an area with indian community and preferrably a good school district. Do reply on this thread if you get any information.

when we were looking to buy our house, we looked at school districts. the best ones are poway school district and north county coastal. we chose north county but i don't know of any indians living here. i am sure they are around but you don't see as many as in mira mesa area where little india is. But mira mesa doesn't have as good a school district, so you really want to come down here for a few days and check out which areas would suit you best. there are so many types of areas down here, its hard to know which ones you would be interested in.

i don't know if poway has an indian community or not. i'm sure there are indians everywhere, you just got to look for them. Plus you can always go down to little india to do shopping for indian supplies.

good luck on your search.

Hi Sweet Orange & Future resident,

Thanks for your response. I am currently exploring residential areas in Scripps Ranch, Carmel Valley & Rancho Bernardo districts. These are closer to my office and also have good schools.

Incase you want more information or want to be friends, please email me at

Hi Rajesh and Sweet Orange

I can understand the mix feelings that you are going through. I will be more than happy to help you. I am a Realtor and can guide you through these bunch of questions that you have regarding school districts, homes, community, Indian friends not only as a Realtor but as being Desi.

Dear Friends, I will be moving to SD next month from LA area. I was looking at POWAY USD schools. I know Chaparral Elementary is probably one of the best, but I am not able to find a good place within its boundary on the web, which is at the intersection of Pomerado and Espola Rd. There was a community called OAK North in the Chaparral elementary boundary, but it seemed like a 55+ condo community. Not sure if it is right for me. Other than that there were not too many choices there at least on the web.

However, I am open to other schools just as good with a good Indian community, like families with young kids etc. I am looking to rent at least a 2 or 3 bed 2 bath. Does anyone know where the indian kids go to school mostly in the POWAY USD?

I will be working in Chula Vista. So I need to find a place quick before mid of next month in a good school boundary, and preferably with a decent Indian community. Also looking to connect with young families to socialize and have kiddo activities etc.

Any suggestions are much appreciated,

@sweetorange, @rajeshp, @sandiego_future_resident et al

we are exactly in the same boat as you were; we will be moving to the SD area early September 2011. Would you mind sharing your experiences and/or recommendations.

Our background: we are moving soon, looking for a decent place, have a 5 year old and would like to be in a good school district around Indian families

Warm regards
