We live in an age where learning is a vital right for every child. Everything now revolves around the certification that one holds hence without quality education making ends meet in this century will be an uphill task. That is the reason why Rocketship school was started one decade ago with an aim to provide better and quality education. In those past ten years that the facility has been around, the founders, staff and the society, in general, have learned quite some lessons. For instance, through the annual home visits, parents, students, and the teachers can develop stronger bonds which in turn enable both parties to assist each other. Rocketship lacks a K12 as is the main area of focus is in elementary education. That is why many parents and sponsors encourage the organization to make a change, and that is where the second lesson comes in. For that to be achievable, they need to create more demand. The schools also ensure inclusion of kids with disabilities by making sure that 80% of their learning time is spent in a classroom. This is the only way that they will be able to access all the benefits. Rocketship Education have built a system of continues learning to help students get a defined mindset. They have also learnt that unity and co-operation is the only way to success and they are very proud to be a public school.
Rocketship is an anon-profit network of schools built on five core values which began in 2006. To enable the school achieves its mission which is to provide quality education for children coming from low-income areas, the parents make contributions while the rest is from the government. It began as a single unit in San Jose, but due to its impeccable work, it currently boasts more than twenty-five facilities spread across different parts of California. The primary value which has helped the school prosper is the involvement of members of the community in its running. For instance, when hiring a new employee, one of the members of the interviewing board is usually a parent. That contributes a lot to ensuring that both the parents are assured that their kids are in good hands.
