What is Rocketship Education?
Rocketship Education is a non-profit organization that mainly serves the children in public elementary schools who are less fortunate with income and have limited access to better schooling. Rocketship Education has more to it than just teaching kids; they want to encourage teachers and get the families more involved to build up a better sound community all around. It’s impossible to complete a mission like this on your own, but together as a team they can achieve bettering the community overall.
Background On Rocketship Education
Rocketship Education organization was founded in 2007 in the Bay Area. Since 2007, Rocketship Education has grown across the regions with 18 schools! This organization has striven to serve different communities in the Bay Area, Nashville, Washington D.C. and Milwaukee. This program has a vision that all children have the right and deserve to go to schools that offer excellent high standard classes. Rocketship Education will only progress higher from this point.
Every system has a dictator in order to keep the community in a civil manner. With Rocketship Education, The teachers are more like mentors and a great support system. Teachers are very important for the success a student has in the classroom, and possibly out. In order for Rocketship Education to feel like they have completed their goal of hiring the best of the best, they put the teachers through courses to see what they’re truly made of. Courses like coaching, leadership programs, and professional development. These courses help the teachers grow in the long run.
A long with Rocketships Education growing tremendously on the outside, there has been some growing taking place on the inside of the classrooms. Rocketship was ranked in the top 10% in math and english among all California elementary school districts. If that isn’t a very special goal, I don’t know what is. Rocketship also ranked 2nd in academic growth out of all 73 elementary schools in Nashville. Rocketship programming is only going to go up from here.
Rocketship Education provides endless opportunities for kids who don’t have as much as a chance. The teachers give them courage that there is hope and success on the other side. I hope all individuals who come across this organization help out in some way, even a simple donation can make a difference. The kids are the future, our lives depend on them.
