Construction has begun for the Stop Six neighborhood’s newest charter school.
Rocketship Public Schools Texas broke ground on the campus Wednesday. The public elementary school, located at 3520 E. Berry St., will stand at two stories with 22 classrooms; two learning labs for project-based, collaborative learning; and a separate gymnasium for physical education. Expected to open in August 2022, the school will serve grades Pre K to third in its first year, with plans to add fourth and fifth grade in the future.
According to Rocketship, the school is one of the first new major development investments in the southeast Berry Street neighborhood in more than a decade, and over 80% of the elementary schools within three miles of the site are rated C or below by the Texas Education Agency.
