Rocketship refers to a national grid of excellent performing elementary institutions that belong to underserved societies. Their mission is to offer parents the various alternatives for excellent public education proudly. Rocketship Education serves on the non-profitability basis and mostly serves low-income students in livelihoods that face different social and economic challenges.
Preston and Danner established Rocketship in the year 2006. The non-profit charter opened first in California at San Jose. The first performance of the school was too good that it earned commendation as a pioneering alternative for students who had a poor background. It later expanded quickly, bringing about additional charter schools over a period of five years. The organization tends to do away with the achievement gap in the lifetime of its students. Teaching with the group is ideal as this place is where good teachers go to grow and develop themselves. Teachers are always given sustenance they deserve to master their skills truly.
Rocketship believes that transformative institutions, educate not only students but also empower the teachers, stakeholders and the general public. They also engage the parents as well as inspire the communities around. The approach used by the organization is based wholly on individual pillars. These pillars include personalized learning, talent search and development and the parenting power.
On customized education, the learning experience is enhanced and content quality adhered to as well as tailoring instruction. The group is also concerned about investing in aptitude growth. Students possess talents that should be developed and perfected to raise their capabilities. Capitalizing on the growth and development of every member, to unleash full potential is what the group brings out from every member. This helps in conjoining the possibility realized in the classroom and beyond.
Empowering the parents is done in ways that lead to unleashing the power of the parents to champion for their children’s education. Holding the leaders accountable is also vital to minimize cases of embezzlement of funds and mismanagement practices. It is the responsibility of the group to ensure that high-quality public institutions thrive in every scope of learning.
