Rocketship Education is a nonprofit school that was created in the early 2000s. Rocketship Education is home to thousands of low income children across the country. So far the school has about 20 different locations located all around the US. Rocketship Education’s goal is to provide low income children with the same education and care that kids receive in middle and upper class neighborhoods. Rocketship Education has been working hard to close the gap between lower class children and middle and upper class children for years now. The school is also a charter school for elementary school children only.
Rocketship Education is different from most schools, because they welcome parents into the school and classroom so that they can be very involved with their child’s education. Rocketship Education believes that it is important to allow parents to be very involved in their child’s education because it helps the parents to see how the interact with other kids in school and with the teachers as well. It is also important for parents to be involved in their child’s education because it helps the parents to enforce what the student is learning in class at home.
Parents of Rocketship Education have commented on Rocketship Education’s way of involving the parents in their education and they are very happy with this new way of teaching. Many parents of Rocketship education feel very proud that they are allowed to be so close with their children’s education.
In addition to Rocketship Education providing this closeness between between education and parents, Rocketship Education has also been providing students and the families of the students the things that they do not have. For example, Rocketship Education ha been known to provide families with shelter, food, and money for necessities. The reasoning behind this makes sense. Rocketship Education understands that learning does not end at school. Education and learning experiences take place at home as well; therefore, Rocketship Education makes sure that their students are comfortable at home to ensure their learning experience remains consistent and great.
Rocketship Education has defiantly set the standard of how education should be.
