The Teacher Student Parent relationship is the tri-force that helps my student succeed. The atmosphere at Uplift High School is electric, allowing my daughter to achieve her very best. April 2018 my sophomore student scored 21 on the ACT. The education that Uplift is providing has proven to be effective.
