School Description and Mission Statement (School Year 2019—20)
Rocketship is reinventing the elementary school, education model.
Each student is unique at Rocketship Futuro Academy, so individual instruction is a critical component for achievement at Rocketship. This manifests through a purposeful focus on guided reading within literacy classes, the use of flexible grouping in math, leveled reading, small group interventions, social-emotional small group support, a focus on targeted online curriculum, and individualized tutoring in small groups during the Learning Lab period.
The Rocketship model allows each school to implement a wide array of classes and skills and an individualized approach to learning. We ensure that all English-Language Learners receive strong designated and integrated English Language Development instruction to ensure they reach high levels of academic achievement. Rocketship utilizes a robust Response to Intervention program, which allows educators to address the special needs of every student achieving below grade level. As part of our Response to Intervention program, Rocketship employs in-class interventions as level one. At levels two and three, Rocketship employs evidenced-based intervention. Through the use of targeted and individualized instruction and interventions, Rocketship teachers are able to meet the needs of specific students and realize the 1.4 years of academic growth that are necessary for them to lay the foundation for college.
Rocketship Futuro Academy is the first Rocketship Public school on the East Bay. In our first two years of operation, we surpassed expectations on enrollment and academic progress achieving higher than 1.4 years of growth overall. This last academic year we also surpassed our enrollment goal and outperformed surrounding title I schools in both Math and ELA as measured by both MAP and SBAC results.
In order to ensure the highest quality education for our students, Rocketship teachers, Individualized Learning Specialists, special education teachers, enrichment coordinators, and school leaders receive extensive training and support. Staff members participate in summer professional development, as well as training during the fall break in October, weekly practice opportunities during common planning time, and on five other in-service days throughout the school year. In addition, each staff member has a personal coach, whom they work with daily. Thursdays are minimum days at Rocketship Futuro Academy, so that staff can participate in formal professional development.
