Redwood City Prep

Redwood City Prep opened in fall 2015 after a group of engaged parents started a movement to bring a great school to their community. We now serve students from Transitional Kindergarten through 5th grade. For more information, contact our Office Manager Michelle Orellana at or 650-482-2429. 

Rocketship Redwood City Prep ranks #1 in math and #2 in English Language Arts performance among English Learners out of all 13 schools in the Redwood City Elementary School District. 

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 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.
