The academic careers of thousands of students and their families have been placed at the door of the San Jose-based charter school system, Rocketship Education. A public school system with a unique goal for developing students in a successful way has seen its work improve over the years as the standard of the work of students has been inspired by a growing desire to work towards improving their own chances of achieving academic success for the future.
Students and their families are given the chance to become increasingly independent during their career at Rocketship Education which includes a need to take a look at each and every aspect of their academic growth in a way which assists in their overall development. Students at Rocketship Education are often faced with challenging school work and difficult choices about which area of academic study they should attempt first each and every day. Educators at the school system work with students to aid in their ability to break down the work they must complete into manageable bites to ensure they achieve as much academic success as possible.
At Rocketship Education the growing sense of working as a team is designed to provide a level of assistance for every family attending the school which is unmatched at a traditional public school system institution. Leaders at Rocketship Education have developed a holistic approach to academia which shows students how their choices in everyday life can often affect their school career; this holistic approach is often seen to affect the home life of individual students who begin to see their life at home begins to focus on the work they are completing school.
Formed in 2006 by Preston Smith and John Danner, Rocketship Education is one of the leading charter school programs in the U.S. with the school system which began in a spare room at a San Jose Church now located in Tennessee, California, Wisconsin, and Washington D.C. The success of Rocketship Education was so impressive that parents in Redwood, California campaigned for the school to move to its community and parents in Tennessee responded to charter schools criticism by local people and politicians.
