With a view overlooking Mission Valley and Presidio Park, Mission Hills is one of San Diego's oldest neighborhoods. The area was developed in the early 1900s and has many historic homes in an array of sizes and a variety of architectural styles, from Mission Revival, to Craftsman Bungalows and Prairie Homes. Most of the homes have been either preserved or restored to their former glory. The area is primarily residential with a spattering of small shops and restaurants. In 2008, detached homes were priced almost twice that of the rest of the city, however, condos were priced very close to the city average. Rents tend to be on the higher side. Encompassing a little more than a square mile, Mission Hills has less than 6000 residents whose ages, incomes, and education levels are significantly higher than the city average. There is no public high school in the neighborhood, so students normally attend either Point Loma or San Diego High.
