Sobering news regarding Uptown's Uplift High School at 900 W. Wilson Avenue.
From a Chicago Tribune story:
"While Uplift was founded with the expectation its student body would primarily come from Uptown, it’s not designated a neighborhood school by Chicago Public Schools. Without a consistent stream of incoming students, or draws like International Baccalaureate or performing arts programs, its enrollment stands at 107 students. Last year, the school used less than 10% of its space."
