What is a Charter School?
Charter schools have been around in Texas since 1995. While the structure and accountability for schools has evolved over the years, high performing charter networks like Uplift Education have risen to the top of the education landscape. Every year, more and more families in Texas are choosing a public charter school for their child’s public education.
