Rocketship is reinventing elementary school from the ground up. We are building a national network of high-performing schools serving more than 7,000 students from low income communities. Our teachers, school leaders, and network support staff are united in our mission to eliminate the achievement gap in our lifetime. Rocketship Education ( www.rsed.org ) is a network of public K through 5 charter schools serving primarily low-income students in neighborhoods where access to excellent schools is limited. Using a
blend of traditional instruction, adaptive technology and targeted tutoring, Rocketship strives to meetthe unique needs of each and every student. But we believe that truly transformative schools do more than educate students; they empower teachers, engage parents and inspire communities. Together, we can eliminate the achievement gap in our lifetime.
Rocketship was founded in San Jose, but we realize the achievement gap stretches across the nation.We’re opening new schools every year to help reach the millions of students striving in underperforming schools every day. We serve primarily low income students (87% of Rocketeers are socioeconomically disadvantaged) from Pre-K to 5th grade.
