It is striking how many people have return to Poway to raise their families. But even more surprising is how many of our teachers worked for a long time to return to teach in Poway.

The Poway Unified school system is known throughout San Diego County to be one of the best if not the best school district around.  Like Solana Beach teachers get on waiting lists to teach in Poway.  Poway has advanced programs for top students.  LIke the Robotics and engineering track at the high school.  But.. it also has great teachers and programs designed to spot children early who need a little extra help and… get them that help.   We also that Poway may be a bit more humane when it comes to homework than one of the other highly regarded schools systems in North County San Diego.  We are not sure that is a good thingt… but it does leave kids with more time for after school sports and other activities like dance or Girl Scouts.
