Each and every student out there deserves a quality education, not just those that come from privileged families. Rocketship Education is a charter school system that is creating more schools every single year that are open to all students, especially those on low-income. More than 25,000 students participated in the Rocketship Education system last year alone and the majority of them came from low-income families. All students are deserving of a quality education and it is important to help every student build a foundation for success and reach their maximum potential. Rocketship Education schools do this through a unique curriculum for all of their students.
Every student that is enrolled in a Rocketship school receives a standard education, but they also receive one-on-one training with tutors that help every student master every area of their learning. Students are also given access to the latest technologies and tools that are available to the educational system to help improve their learning experience. With this method, students rarely fall behind or feel left out when it comes to their schoolwork, which means students are more engaged in the classroom and have a better time learning. Attendance rates and confidence levels also go up when students are enjoying and doing well with their schooling.
Thanks to this hybrid learning method, Rocketship schools have produced some of the highest scoring students in the country, beating out even those in the wealthier cities, including Palo Alto School District. Compared to regular schooling with proficiency ratings in the 50 percentile range, Rocketship Education school students were highly proficient in their studies, especially math with more than 90 percent of students doing exceptionally well. This strong foundation extends throughout a students life in most cases, not just their academic career, teaching the valuable principles they can take and use for the rest of their adult lives.
