Rocketship Discovery Prep

Bay Area

At Rocketship Discovery Prep, we believe that teaching students creative ways of expressing themselves can have a profound impact on their social, emotional, and academic development. Early exposure to visual art, musical foundations, and basic dance movements help shape children’s values, perspectives, and understandings of themselves and the diversity of varied expression in the world around them.

Rocketeers at Discovery Prep outperformed similar students in San Jose Unified in both math and ELA last year!  More than twice as many Rocketeers are on track in math (54%) compared to the San Jose Unified average (22%). In ELA, 46% of Rocketeers are on grade-level compared to 32% across San Jose Unified. Discovery Prep is the 3rd best school in math and 4th best school in ELA across all 30 schools in 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!
