What Makes Rocketship Different

We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to student learning.
We focus on academic growth through personalized, project-based, and rigorous learning that accelerates the highest-achieving students as well as students with the greatest needs.

Rocketship focuses exclusively on elementary education and is designed to improve the entire system of public education in Tarrant County.
When our prepared students and engaged parents move on to attend different middle schools across Tarrant County, those schools will welcome students who are ready for the rigors of middle school and beyond.

Parents and teachers partner to champion their student’s education. 
Educators annually visit the homes of each and every Rocketeer to get to know families outside the classroom. Parents also build community at our monthly family meetings, volunteer opportunities, and through our parent leadership program.
