As of Fall, 2007, there is an alternative high school smack dab in the middle of the mall, courtesy of Einstein Education Center. It's funded, in part, by a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. "E2C served 150 students the first year (2007-2008), with a full capacity of 400 students at the end of the second year." There have been fundraisers and benefit events, such as Sacramento Kings player Mike Bibby coming to a meet and greet.
