Rocketship Education is fully committed to ensuring every child in America receives an education. It is designed to provide personalized learning to low-income students. Rocketship Education schools is a network of non-profit based public charter schools. The school’s models are expected to empower teachers, engage the parents and encourage the students to realize their full potential. Rocketship Education offers free and excellent quality education. The primary goal of Rocketship Education is to strengthen and improve the public school’s system. Rocketship strives to bridge the gap in education between the rich and poor students that has existed for decades.
Parents in different cities are in constant support of efforts by Rocketship to establish new schools in their areas. In 2016, over 700 parents in the Franklin-McKinley district requested that their district approves a new Rocketship school. The new school is expected to provide more students with an opportunity to acquire high-quality learning. Rocketship Education opens up at least two schools every year. The school hopes to serve approximately 25,000 students hailing from low-income families. Rocketship Education recently revealed its plan to continue its expansion by constructing a new two-story school in Antioch. Rocketship Education operates a total of eight schools in Washington, D.C. The newest school in D.C. is the Rocketship Elementary School. Since the establishment of the first school in 2007, Rocketship Education has grown tremendously and operates over 25 schools in low-income areas.
Rocketship schools are guided by four values that are common for each one, and they include respect, responsibility, empathy, and persistence. The school, however, rolled out a new additional core value that is gratitude. The value is expected to enable students to build strong relationships with their peers and teachers. Rocketship United Academy students were recently told to write a sentence thanking one of their school mates for something that they had accomplished. The aim was to watch gratitude grow through the halls of Rocketship United Academy. Rocketship Education engages parents in the selection of new teachers by involving them in the interviewing process. That helps parents and educators to establish healthy relationships even before the start of the school calendar.
