Carmel Valley encompasses six communities: Carmel Country Highlands, Carmel Valley, Del Mar Mesa, Pacific Highlands Ranch, Torrey Del Mar, and Vicinity and Torrey Hills. Carmel Valley Public Schools have been among the highest-rated in North County and continue to be the dominating factor for prospective home buyers to purchase here. Out of the 416 public elementary schools in San Diego County, all of the elementary schools score near the top of the state’s Academic Performance Index. The API is a numeric index ranging from a low of 200 to a high of 1000 that reflects a school’s performance level, based on the results of statewide testing. This region is also home to two of the most prestigious private schools in San Diego County: Cathedral High School and the San Diego Jewish Academy, along with world-renowned Torrey Pines High School, and Canyon Crest Academy. Having excellent schools helps to retain home values. Carmel Valley has remained one of the best investments according to Dream Homes Magazine and continues to be affordable as well as a desirable location.

Many of the communities in 92130 include the levy of a special tax (Mello-Roos), which is usually added to the annual property tax bills over a 20-25 year period. When Prop. 13 passed in 1978, it limited the ability of local governments to use property taxes to construct public facilities and services. The Mello-Roos Community Facilities Act of 1982, authored by California congressmen Mello and Roos, enabled “Community Facilities Districts” to be established by local governments as a means of obtaining crucial community funding for schools, public roads, storm sewers, and water mains, police and fire stations, ambulance services, public libraries, parks, museums, and cultural facilities. The quality of life here is excellent. If being close to shopping, movies, galleries, upscale dining to casual restaurants, parks, bike trails, schools, beaches and more, Carmel Valley is the community for you. There are approximately 13,500 homes and condos, and the residents are executives and professionals who often work in nearby Sorrento Valley’s high-tech and biotech firms. Most of the jobs in the area are in research, medical and business centers. Due to the proximity of the University of California and Scripps Medical Centers, staff and students live here.
