The Mt. Helix area, in San Diego California, is actually several neighborhoods. They are parts of the county that are unincorporated and found by the cities of La Mesa and El Cajon and a bit of unincorporated Spring Valley community too. It is also known as Casa de Oro-Mount Helix. Mt. Helix got its name because the discovery of a European snail, the Helix aspersa, that was living on a little mountain, was made in 1872, by a scientist. So, Rufus King Porter, who founded the area, submitted just the name Helix to the U.S. Postal Service as they did not accept two words for names of post offices at the time.
A suburban area, Mt. Helix is a relatively small place to live where the top industries located around here are management, utilities and military. The San Diego International Airport is the closest place to catch a flight. Children who attend public schools are able to attend the Grossmont Union High School District. The La Mesa-Spring Valley School District oversees education for the elementary and middle schools in the area. The average home in Mt. Helix was built in 1970, and is owned rather than rented.
