Homes in Poway
Poway is a city in San Diego County, California. Poway’s rural roots gave rise to its slogan “The City in the Country.” Some nearby communities of San Diego include Rancho Bernardo, Sabre Springs, Scripps Ranch, Rancho Peñasquitos, and in the county to the east, the community of Ramona.
Though many residents today mistake Poway for an old Western-style cowboy town, its original roots lie in agriculture. The fecund soil proved well-suited to a variety of crops, including peaches, Muscat grapes, apricots, pears, hay, and alfalfa.
Poway High School operates as part of the Poway Unified School District. The school’s teams, the Titans, participate in wrestling, lacrosse, baseball, and football. The Titan wrestling team, coached by Wayne Branstetter since 1978, has won 25 consecutive CIF San Diego Section Championships, placed in the top five statewide 20 times, and won four CIF State Wrestling Team Championships. The Emerald Brigade, the school’s marching band, competes throughout the year and has won sweepstakes and top honors. The Emerald Brigade won top honors in regional and national competitions in the late 1990s. The Poway High School Choir department sends its top choirs (Die Lieders and Women’s & Men’s Ensembles) to compete nationally, acquiring top awards in various major cities around the United States, including San Francisco, Washington D.C., Chicago, Illinois and Orlando, Florida. Many highly accomplished leaders attended Poway High School including biotechnology pioneer and acclaimed scientist David Goeddel.
