As thousands of children across San Diego head back to school, Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer rings the school bell at the grand opening of Urban Discovery Academy, San Diego’s newest K-8 charter school. Over 400 students will begin school at the Urban Discovery Academy’s (UDA) new 37,000-square foot building in San Diego’s Innovation Design Education Arts (IDEA) District. The building contains 18 brightly-colored classrooms, a performing arts venue, a visual arts studio and rooftop pavilion for special events. The school will also serve as an evening center for extended educational and cultural programs in cooperation with many community-focused non-profit organizations and charitable foundations.
