Uplift Laureate Preparatory Secondary
DALLAS -- Uplift Education broke ground for a new charter school in Deep Ellum on Thursday.
The school will be located in the 2600 block of Elm Street.
The project did not get to this point without controversy.
In February, the city council lifted the ordinance that kept bars from opening within 300 feet of the campus.
It also approved Uplift selling low-interest, tax-exempt bonds to help with construction costs.
The school will serve grades six through 12 and is set to open in August.
