    Hello. I'm Bri and I'm in Murphy Canyon as well, but in the Santo neighborhood. What school are you sending your daughter to?

    I have three. My son is at De Portola middle school and my girls go to Vista Grande. I love Vista Grande, but I've also heard good things about Tierrasanta from two of my neighbors, friend, and another soccer mom who have kids at Tierrasanta. They are a year-round school. They go until the 3rd week of July. Vista is traditional, they get out the 3rd week of June.

    If you decide to send your student somewhere other than your neighborhood school, go to the school you are wanting to enroll in and file the CHOICE paperwork there. If you go to Tierrasanta ask to talk to the person who handles the enrollment/CHOICE applications. If they have space available they will most likely start enrollment paperwork right then. If you can't talk to the person who handles enrollment, leave a contact number and follow up. The Unified San Diego School District office will more often than not bury or lose your application.

    I can't tell you how many people tried to get into Vista and were denied, but had the principal or enrollment secretary had known, they would have taken the students in a heartbeat! The only grade level (at the start of Christmas break) that we did not have space in was 5th grade. I'm not sure about Tierrasanta.

    Thanks for all the info.....we are definately going with Tierrasanta. Talked to my daughter about attending a year round school and she is really excited about. She is really excited about everything, which makes it easy on me!

    Traditional schools start the Tuesday after Labor Day and go until mid June. Year round schools start the Tuesday after Labor Day and go until the third week of July. Year round gets longer Christmas and Spring breaks than traditional. Both schools inside of military housing (Hancock and Miller) are year round. You can fill out an application to go outside of your boundary/neighborhood school. Most of the families who've chosen to go outside of housing for elementary schools have chosen Vista Grande (traditional), Kumayaay (traditional), or Tierrasanta (year round). All three are in Tierrasanta and within 7 to 10 minutes drive.

    I was wondering how far in advance do you have to do the choice paper work? We won't move in house until July. Also what are the hours of the schools there?
