[GP] Rocketship Education is Launching in Ward 8!

Transformative schools do more than educate students. They empower teachers, engage parents and inspire communities. Rocketship Education is a nonprofit network of public elementary charter schools that believes all children deserve access to an excellent education, regardless of background or family income. Earlier this year, Rocketship broke ground on a brand new, state of the art elementary school in Woodland Terrace.

Every week, Rocketship hosts information sessions for parents and community members to learn more about the school, including how to apply or get involved.  Parents and community members can also sign up for a hard hat tour of the new facilities.

Through its unique combination of personalized learning, parent engagement, and excellent teachers Rocketship creates a learning environment that ensures all children are on the path to college.  In a single school year, students at Rocketship grow an average of 1.7 years in math and 1.5 years in English Language Arts.

Be sure to stop by Rocketship’s booth at EdFest on December 12. Don’t forget that My School DC applications open on December 14. If you need any assistance completing your application, feel free to contact Rocketship staff.
