Two Schools East of The River! 

All kids deserve access to an excellent school in their own community. But too many families East of the River do not have this option for their students. Until now. Rocketship Education opened its first elementary school, Rocketship Rise Academy, in Ward 8 on August 22, 2016. In partnership with AppleTree, Rocketship now serves nearly 500 students from PK3 through 2nd grade. The school will grow to serve students through 5th grade by 2019.  In Fall 2017, Rocketship will open its second school East of the River in Ward 7. 
Rocketship schools are free, public elementary schools that are committed to putting every student on the path to college. Students at Rocketship schools 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 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!
