Rocketship United is among the 14 public charter schools receiving the Reward school designation. The K-4th grade multicultural school says it searned the distinction by increasing the success rate of its mostly low-income students at a faster rate than many other elementary schools in Nashville during the 2021-22 school year.
“After the unfinished learning resulting from COVID-19 closures and interruptions, it is encouraging to see our students learning at an accelerated pace, which we know is the only way to reach our goal of closing achievement gaps,” said Rocketship United in a statement. “We are proud of our Rocketeers’ progress, but we also know that there is much more work to be done. We know we will get there and grow beyond where we were before the pandemic by continuing to focus on each student’s individual needs and personalizing their learning.”
