Oct. 5th was Rocketship Public Schools Texas’ grand opening of their newest campus, Rocketship Explore Elementary, 300 E. Loop 820.
Kindergartner Mariah Bourne said she loves her school and how everyone from teachers to students are happy and helpful.
“(My teacher) has taught me how to read like a third grader,” Mariah said, adding she wants to be a doctor when she grows up.
Alex Jimenez, a Rocketship Texas board member, told attendees the charter network’s goal is to have every student reading on grade level by the time they leave for the sixth grade — or earlier. Rocketship offers kindergarten through fifth grade. After they leave, students attend whatever middle school their families choose.
“And be the best student at that school,” Jimenez said.
