Yugang Li and China National Opera & Dance Drama theater perform at e3!

e3 Civic High scholars had the privilege of enjoying a performance by Yugang Li and China National Opera & Dance Drama theater. Mr. Li is one of the most highly regarded actors in China today and is especially known for his portrayal of female characters. Scholars were mesmerized by the operatic performance and engaged in the discussion of the Chinese culture and traditions. A designated Confucius Institute, e3 Civic High offers many opportunities for scholars to experience Chinese culture and arts by hosting special guests and traveling to China every year!

CEO keeps innovative high school on track

Every day, students at e3 Civic High are greeted by a familiar face. After trekking up six flights of stairs in the San Diego Central Library to reach the school, Dr. Cheryl James-Ward meets them with a therapist by her side. Even as her role has expanded — she was recently promoted from serving as chief impact officer and principal of the charter school to its CEO and chief engagement and innovation officer — she still takes time for this morning ritual.
