Uplift Education has a research-based, proven approach to education across our schools. Below are the core components of how we deliver on student achievement:
A culture that promotes positive, high expectations for our scholars and staff: Everyone is focused on learning and doing “whatever it takes” for our scholars to be successful.
Mission-focused on “Shine through Life”: We view college as one step on our scholars’ journies to be productive, responsible leaders in the community.
Efficient centralized services that allow school leaders to focus on what really matters: Uplift’s central office manages HR, finance, facilities planning, fundraising, technology and PR on behalf of our schools at a cost that is meaningfully less than that often found within traditional school districts.
Serve grades K-12: We believe in the importance of vertical alignment and that discussions about college need to start in kindergarten.
International Baccalaureate curriculum: We have a rigorous college preparatory curriculum including IB and Advanced Placement classes.
Data matters: We set goals at the scholar, teacher and leadership levels at the beginning of the year and actively monitor progress using regular assessments.
Freedom to innovate: We encourage our teachers and school leaders to constantly identify and incorporate best practices into their classrooms and schools.
Community-based dual board structure: Each campus has a local board of appointed community leaders to ensure more granular focus on student achievement.
