Why Rocketship Public Schools Builds An Educational Community

Rocketship Public Schools believes that stability is one of the key factors when it comes to creating a great classroom. A family that is stable and a positive part of the community is a large part of what it takes for students in the family to succeed. The leaders of Rocketship Public Schools want to build an educational community that includes educators, parents, and children are working together to support the student’s education.

One person that knows how important family stability and having an educational community is Dulce of San Diego. Her child, Cesar, attends the Rocketship Public School in that city. Her home was devastated by a flood that destroyed everything they had. It turns out that it was her child’s school that came to the rescue. They were able to help her family recover and her child’s education was uninterrupted during this process.

At Rocketship Public Schools they are also dedicated to narrowing the educational gap that exists between schools in low-income areas versus those in other areas around the country. Far too often the educational outcomes of a student are tied to family income and how close they live to a school with a robust budget due to bringing in property tax dollars from high-value homes. Children without these advantages are swiftly left behind.

Most of Rocketship Public Schools students come from low-income homes. Despite this they are achieving consistently high test scores and doing well for their grade level. One of the keys has been using a hybrid education that combines conventional teaching along with technology. The students are engaged and able to learn in a way that most suits their ideal way of learning.

Rocketship Public Schools was founded in San Diego. They now have 20 schools including those in the Bay area, Nashville, Milwaukee, and Washington D.C. They were founded on a belief that every student has the right to meet their full potential. They call the students Rocketeer’s to reflect that the potential each student has can be unlocked and send their educational attainment soaring.
