Rocketship Dennis Dunkins Elementary

Rocketship Dennis Dunkins Elementary is a new, tuition-free public charter school open to all students in grade PK-3 and growing to ultimately serve grades PK-5 in Tarrant County. We strive to partner with our community and lift parent voices. Founded by leaders born and raised in Southeast Fort Worth, Rocketship Public Schools Texas strives to create a community school where children not only receive an excellent education but families get the resources they need outside of the classroom so their child can show up fully in the classroom.

Our flagship school, Rocketship Dennis Dunkins Elementary, will be located at 3520 E. Berry St., Fort Worth and will offer free, bus transportation for families.

We want our school to represent not just the possibility of the future, but also to call upon the beautiful community we have here in Stop Six.
