Charter High School Opens INSIDE New San Diego Central Library Building

From the Union-Tribune (San Diego):

Then there are the views — sweeping panoramas of the San Diego-Coronado Bridge, Petco Park and the heart of downtown San Diego. And don’t forget the resources — 14,000 DVDs, 1.2 million books and 1.6 million historic and governmental documents.

Welcome to E3 Civic High.

The city’s newest and unlikeliest high school opened Tuesday — along with those in the San Diego Unified School District — inside the central library, even as construction crews scramble to complete the domed structure that rises from the downtown skyline.


The school occupies the sixth and seventh floors of the library and will have access to its resources and staff. Classes will be taught using project-based and instruction techniques that ask students to tackle real problems with lessons that combine multiple subjects.

The new San Diego Central Library is scheduled to open on September 28, 2013 for a sneak preview with a full opening on September 30, 2013.
