Principal's Message


Dear Uplift Community,
I would like to introduce myself as your new principal and express my excitement to work alongside you to make Uplift into a vibrant educational community that prepares the next generation of global leaders. I come to you from Lake View High School and have a track record of achieving academic excellence in the schools that I’ve led. This record is not due to my work alone, but through a collaborative effort of the talented teachers, staff, parents, community members, partners and students that I’ve had the privilege of serving. I know that through our partnership we will create a school that becomes a model for educational excellence.
I look forward to our success as a school. If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please email me at tlgraham@cps.edu.

Educationally Yours,



Dr. Tyrese L. Graham
