Hi, we are considering relocating to San Diego for a position with Qualcomm. My main concern is 1) good public schools and 2) safety as we have a 5 and 8 year old. Any suggestions for good, affordable neighborhoods that wouldn't be a huge commute to Qualcomm? (which according to google maps, looks to be just north of sorrento valley).

Thank you

Qualcomm has their offices scattered all over the city so you will need to be more specific as to where you are working. Most of the campus is around Sorrento Mesa which is non-residential, but nearby areas arevery safe with good schools. Unfortunately those areas are essentially unaffordable to many with home prices for a detached home often in the 6-7-800k+ range.

Most people will have a commute of some sort. "Affordable" is very subjective so give us an idea of your price range. The standard answer would be Poway, Rancho Penasquitos, Carmel Mountain which are the more affordable tracts that still have top-performing schools. Outside of those areas you either pay a huge premium for housing or face a much longer commute.

Find out which campus exactly, because as was stated earlier, they have many and are scattered around, but the big one is in SV like you saw on the google search.
