Gatewood Hills is a residential community in the heart of Rancho Bernardo.  Originally developed in the early 1960's and late 1970’s, it begins at the northeast corner of Rancho Bernardo and Pomerado Roads.  Characterized by its scenic hillsides with boulders, many of the homes have spectacular views of the surrounding areas.  Chaparral Elementary School sits between Gatewood Hills and North Poway in the Poway Unified School District.

Chaparral Elementary School
Many students in Rancho Bernardo and North Poway attend Chaparral School, in the Poway Unified School District.  The school actually sits between the cities of San Diego and Poway, and can be seen in the center of this photograph. This view is from southeast to northwest with Chaparral School in the center.  Rancho Bernardo's Gatewood Hills is to the left of the school, and the Vineland Hills / Stoneridge area of North Poway is to the right of the school. The Oaks North Golf Course can be seen in the center background. (photo taken August 2004)
