Rocketship Education, also called Rocketship Public Schools, is a line of 18 schools located all across the United States of America. Its current President, Preston Smith, co-founded the school with help from a tech device and educational software guru, John Danner, all the way back in 2006.
The public charter school system’s first year of operation came in 2007. Since, thousands of students have graduated from the public charter school network, totaling more than 15,000 students served in its first ten full years of providing top-notch, premier educational experiences to kids – the vast majority of which hail from low-income, impoverished backgrounds that often result in those same kids being subjected to generational poverty traps.
However, thanks to the kind-hearted nature of Preston Smith, his co-adminsitrative staff, and all the teachers that make operations possible, roughly 3,500 students have been able to receive top-tier educations that they otherwise wouldn’t have been able obtain.
Let’s peer into what’s going on with Rocketship Education this upcoming school year, the current 2017-2018 season
What’s New For Preston Smith’s Creation In The @018-2019 Academic Year
California is home to more than ten facilities within the Rocketship Education network of chartered public schools. One of these facilities is found in Redwood City, California.
For those that live outside of California or the greater West Coast area – or maybe you do live in the Golden State, but you simply don’t know where Redwood City is located, – it’s nestled in between some of the state’s largest, most bustling cities, and is found in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The Redwood City location, a chartered elementary public school – just like every single other school that’s found in the network, it can bring home funding from private parties, although it can also do the same from governmental agencies, without having to follow the strongest rules, layouts, flows, and guidelines set forth by school boards – had been located 1440 Connecticut Drive, and it will be located at 860 Charter Street as of the moment the transfer is completed.
