Congratulations and welcome to Rocketship! We know that you had a lot of options, and we are so excited that you chose us!
Ward 7 School Building Opening This Year
In order to make sure that we are able to give your scholar what they need to succeed — from a computer lab with laptops for each child to a space for our dance party every morning — we always build a brand new building for our Rocketeers. As you may know, our building is currently under construction, and we now know it will not be completed by the first day of school. However, we are extremely excited to announce that we will have access to our new Ward 7 school building during the upcoming 17-18 school year.
Ward 7 School Starting the School Year at RISE
We will be working with our construction team to determine the best time for us to move into our brand new building! As part of this process, we will be sharing a campus, and plan to use our current school, Rocketship Rise Academy in Ward 8, as the temporary school for the beginning of the year.
Being able to start off our year at Rise means students will get to know their principal, office staff, and teachers in a space just like the one we will move to. But, it also means that we will have the freedom to move into our new building and use it sooner. We hope that you understand how excited we are to have our school in Ward 7 and look forward to working with you to create a new community of students, parents, and teachers working together to reach each child’s goals.
If you have any questions, you can call us at 202-627-2256 to learn more about this decision. We will be happy to give you a tour of Rocketship Rise so you can see the space where your student will start their time as a Rocketeer. Please let us know how we can help, and thank you for your understanding.
