Next fall, a new elementary school dedicated to bringing music to the forefront of education will be opening in Metro Nashville.
Rocketship Public Schools broke ground on the new campus in Antioch on Wednesday morning. Rocketship Public Schools, a nonprofit network of public elementary charter schools, currently operates two schools in Metro Nashville.
“When we open our doors next August we will welcome 420 founding Rocketeers. I am driven by the belief that a child’s educational outcomes should not be determined by ZIP codes or family income. Every child at Rocketship Antioch will receive an education that will equip them with the skills, knowledge and confidence to dictate their own paths in life,” Founding Principal Jessica Alexander said.
