Rocketship Spark Academy

Bay Area

Spark Academy ranks #1 in math AND #1 in ELA across all 15 schools in the Franklin-McKinley District! Nearly 9 out of 10 Rocketeers come from low-income families. These are the families that underperforming public schools have let fall behind for too long. We pay close attention to how our low-income students perform compared to similar students in your local school district.  Rocketeers at Spark significantly outperformed similar students in Franklin-McKinley in both math and ELA! 

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!
