Rocketship Alma Academy

Alma Rocketeers are active citizens in their classrooms, homes, and communities.  Our Rocketeers develop a social awareness of the needs that surround them and dedicate their time, energy, and talent to serve those very needs.  In doing so, our Rocketeers improve upon their own understandings of the world around them and also seek to improve the lives of others -- not just their own. Rocketeers at Alma outperformed similar students in San Jose Unified in both math and ELA!  More than twice as many Rocketeers are on track in math (56%) compared to the San Jose Unified average (22%). Alma Academy is the #2 school in math across San Jose Unified! 

Rocketship schools are free, public elementary schools that are committed to putting every student on the path to college. Students at Rocketship schools across the Bay Area make remarkable progress every year. In a single school year, Rocketeers (that's what we call our students) achieve a year and a half of growth in math and reading. Our focus on personalized learning and parent engagement allows us to meet the unique needs of each and every student we serve. 

Rocketship schools are community schools. We serve all students including English language learners and students with special needs. We partner closely with parents to create a school that is deeply connected to the community we serve. Join us and together, we will prepare your child for liftoff!
