Uplift Education charter schools in Dallas

Below is an article about the wonderful Uplift Education charter schools in Dallas – here's an update from ed warrior Todd Williams:


We recently had our first college signing day on the campus of SMU, celebrating the 100% college acceptance rate for our 200 seniors (over 1,000 acceptances and $25 million of scholarships) in front of our 2,500 6th thru 11th graders.  We will educate over 5,700 students this fall across 20 schools on 8 campuses and just approved our strategic plan to serve 13,000 students in five years and 20,000 students by end of decade.  Our only two high schools eligible were named the 10th and 11th best public high schools in country by Washington Post.  Great momentum in Dallas.
