Kensington is more than Mission Hills East. Tidy to a fault, the area is replete with scores of pre-war Spanish homes and very few rental properties. Kensington is bordered by canyons to the north and Adams Avenue to the south, creating a tightly knit and well-kept neighborhood. Prices have always lagged behind Mission Hills and Hillcrest, primarily due to the fact that there were real mean streets not too far south of Adams Avenue. That and poor public schools have restrained prices. Over the past decade, the very small village area has been revitalized with very good restaurants and I suspect the resurgence in City Heights will increase demand for Kensington homes over the next decade. If you believe in San Diego’s urban promise, investing in Kensington is a sure bet.

Public & Private Institutions Of Learning
Education is provided by public, private and home schools. State governments set overall educational standards, often mandate standardized tests for K–12 public school systems and supervise, usually through a board of regents, state colleges, and universities. Funding comes from the state, local, and federal government. Private schools are generally free to determine their own curriculum and staffing policies, with voluntary accreditation available through independent regional accreditation authorities, although some state regulation can apply.
