It is every parent’s dream to give the very best foundation to their children especially when it comes to education. Recent times and hardship have made education expensive and out of reach especially for low-income families.

They do this by providing free quality education to the children of low-income families and those that have English as their second language.

Rocketship education is categorized under prep K-5 charter schools as well as public K-5 College and has a chain of branches countrywide.

It also offers access to parents and engages them in helping with the learning of their children. By doing this, it ensures that the community, parents as well as the children grow together in harmony and act as advocates for each other.
In addition, an estimated ninety percent of the students are provided for free lunch. The schools also accommodate diversity as seventy-five percent of the students do not have English as their native language. Its motto recognizes that the journey towards achieving a college education for every child has its beginning at kindergarten. With that goal in mind, the school gives importance to the foundation that it provides to its students.
