Message from CEO

    Yasmin Bhatia, CEO of Uplift Education with Uplift scholars As we enter into our second decade of serving D/FW scholars and families, I am excited for all we have accomplished, and all that we have planned for the decades to come.  We started with one charter school in Irving in 1996 and have grown to 37 schools on 19 campuses serving 17,500 scholars in six communities.  We are the largest charter school network in North Texas, and continue to be proud of our 100% college acceptance for our graduates.  We look forward to a future of educating more scholars and improving education as a whole for all children.
