Rocketship Education has a completely different approach to teaching and helping students learning. AT Rocketship, teachers are able to engage their students in a more active and strategized learning environment which also allows parents to engage with their kids as well. Rocketship public charter schools offer a standard curriculum, but they also provide their students with one on one learning programs as well to help them maximize their potential.
Rocketship Education’s co-founder, Preston Smith has explained to the media about the attacks against the school as of late in the media, most of which are just rude and have no basis of fact behind them. As CEO for the company, Preston Smith defends Rocketship and their vision to revolutionize the education system for kids all over the country. Why there is some accurate information in the report done by NPR, it was hurt by other bloggers and journals who misrepresent information.
One of the core goals of Rocketship Education is to eliminate the gaps int he education system for all students. This is a difficult achievement, but Rocketship Education is hard at work opening new schools and expanding on their system. According to a recent student, more than 70 percent of parents that send their kids to Rocketship Education charters schools have recommended other people to send their kids there as well. Unlike many other schools, especially in more well-to-do communities, quality education comes at a price. Rocketship works to provide an equal education to all students, regardless of their background of whether they have the necessary funds. Rocketship has gone as far as helping several students stay in their schools despite difficult home situations.
Thousands of children from all over California attend Rocketship schools every year with a huge background in diversity. Rocketship wants to get more parents involved with their schools and their kids to make a better experience for everyone. Teachers even make home visits to get better acquainted with their student’s parents and families so they can feel more at home when they are in the classroom.
