The City Heights neighborhood has undergone a dramatic transformation. If you could see what the community used to look like, or hear what people used to say about it, you would be shocked. There used to be a sign posted here that said “Welcome to City Heights, San Diego’s Crime Capital. Won’t Anybody Help?” for crying out loud. This billboard (in the 90s) actually helped bring about a lot of change, although the revitalization -- or renaissance, as locals are insisting I call it -- really took place in the ‘00s. Retail complexes, new schools, libraries and police headquarters, an urban village, and hip bars and clubs have all been critical factors in this renaissance. Also, nonprofits have helped redevelop buildings and homes, as well as clean up a lot of the graffiti and mess in the community. This is absolutely a neighborhood on the rise.

The San Diego Unified School District is in charge of every public school in City Heights--there are around 12 elementary schools, 2 high schools, and 3 middle schools. There are also private schools and charter schools too, if you want more options for your child. The Waldorf School School of San Diego and Our Lady of the Sacred Heart School are private schools, and the Health Science High and Middle College and the City Heights Prep Academy are charter schools. There are some truly excellent schools here, such as Crawford High, which has sub-schools within itself, like a Law and Business School and a Multimedia and Visual Arts School.
