Every Student Can Succeed

Rocketship Education is a network of public elementary charter schools serving primarily low-income students in neighborhoods where access to excellent schools is limited.  We believe that truly transformative schools do more than educate students; they empower teachers, engage parents and inspire communities.

Together, we can eliminate the achievement gap in our lifetime.
