Rocketship Education is a unique public charter school concept that is usually placed in lower economic neighborhoods where quality public schools are not available. The emphasis is to get the community at large as well as parents involved in the entire educational process because both parties have much at stake in the process.
When the community and parents see how Rocketship Education operates and the results that have occurred from the unique approach that is utilized, they are anxious to participate in the program. The average Rocketship student acquires enough knowledge and credits to graduate a full year ahead of the average public school student, which is a very impressive achievement indeed.
Rocketship Education takes the education and the development of the students very seriously from K through 12th-grade education. They take the traditional model of education where students are run through the regimen of 4 or 5 formal classroom sessions where everyone is taught the same subject matter in the same way. This does produce results, but not in the measure where excellence is the outcome.
Rocketship not only emphasizes the subject matter in unique ways, but the development of the student is a very important activity as well. Rocketship education emphasizes three pillars of their transformative process. Personalized learning, the development of talent, and parent power are the three keys to the success of Rocketship.
There are characteristics that are emphasized to the students as well in their learning process at Rocketship education.
