Uplift Hampton High School, Uplift Williams High School, Uplift North Hills High School, and Uplift Summit Middle School were among the hundred of schools recognized by the Texas Education Agency for earning all seven distinctions in the 2015 accountability ratings released in the beginning of August.
According to TEA, campuses that receive an accountability rating of Met Standard are also eligible for distinction designations.

Distinction designations can be earned by campuses for:
- Academic Achievement in Reading/English Language Arts;
- Academic Achievement in Mathematics;
- Academic Achievement in Science;
- Academic Achievement in Social Studies;
- Top 25 Percent: Student Progress;
- Top 25 Percent: Closing Performance Gaps; and
- Postsecondary Readiness.
In addition, all five Uplift Education districts met state standards.
