The East Village neighborhood is bursting with brain power– a bonafide knowledge district with charter schools, higher-education, and additional schools in the works. The new charter school Urban Discovery Academy is helping to nurture San Diego’s youngest thinkers, with plans to create a charter high school next door. With San Diego City College at the North East corner, and the NewSchool of Architecture and Design helping groom the next generation of city builders, East Village has become an education hot spot. Did we mention a new UCSD urban campus is on the way too?
With its bevy of colleges, it’s no wonder that East Village is an incubator for innovation. Momentum is building, from the events space Quartyard (created by NewSchool grads), to the Urban Discovery Academy founded by SDCC instructor and award winning designer MaeLin Levine.
