Description

Organizational Overview 

Rocketship Public Schools (http://www.rocketshipschools.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 meet the unique needs of each and every student. But we believe 

that truly transformative schools do more than education students; they empower teachers, engage 

parents and inspire communities. Together, we can eliminate the achievement gap in our lifetime. 


Rocketship schools are located in the Bay Area, Nashville, Milwaukee, and Washington, DC 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.
