UpLift teaches 7 Character Qualities in 29 Denver Public Schools beginning as early as elementary school.
The Colorado UpLift model is so powerful that I used it to elevate an entire school. As the principal at Manny Martinez Middle School, I was so impressed by the impact UpLift was having with the kids involved, that I implemented a school-wide program. Using the UpLift model and core curriculum as the foundation, I was able to improve the school’s climate and culture. This program significantly improved our scores as one the lowest performing schools within Denver Public Schools. In fact, the program was so successful that it resulted in substantial increases in student achievement, improved student daily attendance rates and a decrease in negative student behavior. Results achieved are verifiable as part of the Denver Public Schools and State of Colorado School Performance Framework and a testament to the power of UpLift.
