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.


A big thank you to The Home Depot for their extraordinary support in helping e3 Civic High’s carwash fundraiser in support of our scholar Angel Romero and his family. Their donation is most appreciated and valued. e3 Civic High’s efforts to support our scholars and their families would not be possible without community partners like The Home Depot!
