Default Best & Worst school districts in San Diego county

From what I hear, the Poway school district is the best.

Am I right?

I don't know which one is the worst. Maybe El Cajon.

Yes, Poway is excellent and very highly rated. We lived in Poway for 17 years and our son graduated from Poway High.

What absolute nonsense. Cajon Valley school district has some of the best schools in the county (eg Fuerte, Hillsdale, Valhalla).

How do you measure badness?

Strictly in terms of test scores, Lemon Grove is the most uniformly bad. Escondido Union is close too, but at least it has some good schools, Lemon Grove has none. San Ysidro used to be really bad, but they seem to have gotten their act together in the last few years.

If the plan to split San Diego Unified ever goes through (I doubt it will), the southeast part will be the worst district in the county.

what is the point of this question? Every time this question is answered it is more or less the same response: Poway, San Dieguito, Coronado, Carlsbad, San Marcos, etc. You may as well be asking which district is the wealthiest.

Just because Cajon Valley is a poorer school district doesnt make it a bad one. Just because Carlsbad is a wealthier district doesnt make it a good one. However the only response that you will ever get out of asking this is the conclusion that wealthier districts are better.

It's yet another attempt by the BenzBoy to engage in class warfare. Don't feed the troll.

The wealthier districts are better because they have a much higher parent participation in their child's schools.

By the way, nice attempt to promote the usual liberal class warfare.

They have a much higher participation because there is a pool of educated stay at home moms participating in the activities at the school and at home. Not all people in good school districts are wealthy - this is a sweeping generalization. Many people in these areas made a decision to live there regardless of the cost, and many live paycheck to paycheck. In the Bay Area, it's the same way. I've heard stories of 3 families living in a single family home in Cupertino just so their kids can benefit from the school district.

Good districts also attract/retain the more experienced teachers as well. Tenure for teachers in the Poway school district is very high. Essentially you need to wait for someone to retire for a position to open up.

seriously, this question was completely staged. sandiegoteen has already commented numerous times on the topic of school districts, so why bring it up again?
