School Description and Mission Statement (School Year 2019—20)
Rocketship is reinventing the elementary school, education model.
Each student is unique at Rocketship Brilliant Minds, so individual instruction is a critical component for achievement at Rocketship. This manifests through a purposeful focus on personalized and small group instruction in math and literacy. We provide targeted instruction so that students can meet their academic goals in an environment that is conducive to their learning needs.
At Rocketship Brilliant Minds, we pride ourselves on providing engaging enrichment options for our students. Rocketeers are able to develop a love of health and sports through our Physical Education program. Our Art enrichment program gives students the opportunity to learn and express themselves by studying the works of famous artists and practicing a variety of different techniques and mediums. Our Science enrichment teaches students how to use the scientific method to explore the world around them and beyond. Along with our robust academic instruction, these programs ensure that our students' well-rounded individuals and leaders.
The Rocketship model allows each school to implement a wide array of classes and skills and an individualized approach to learning. 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 its Response to Intervention program, Rocketship writes Individualized Learning Plans for each student and focuses a significant amount of time, instruction, planning, and professional development in regards to in-class individualized instruction. Rocketship teachers use formal and informal assessments to measure student progress and modify individualized plans on a weekly basis. Through the use of targeted and individualized instruction and interventions, teachers are able to meet the needs of specific students and realize the 1.5 years of academic growth that are necessary for them to lay the foundation for college.
Rocketship Brilliant Minds also believes that parents are critical participants in the academic success of their students. Classroom teachers conduct at least one home visit in the first semester, three parent conferences, and make formal contacts with each Rocketeer parent once per month. Additionally, Rocketship Brilliant Minds conducts monthly Parent Coffees and conducts multiple family activities throughout the year. Through this significant outreach and community building, Rocketship not only provides an individualized classroom experience for students but also creates a community that encourages and focuses on parent participation and empowerment as a critical element of a Rocketeer’s success.
