Rocket ship education is a public charter school that made a name for itself with the excellent test scores and diverse learning system. Preston Smith who is also the Executive officer founded it in 2007. Since its establishment, the network aims at providing quality education for its students. The public charter school aims at attaining education prosperity for public schools by improving the quality of teaching in the school. As an example, the school has incorporated various education systems and conveniently selected those that will aid in learning progress while still maintaining administration expenses at low levels. A recent study conducted at Stanford University shows that consistent attendance by the English learners is bound to boost student achievement and also adequately prepares the students for college.
The school has so far opened a total of 27 public schools that have presented good performance results. This performance success is due to the readiness of the organization to ally with community groups, students, and the parents to establish a working and efficient system. Various business leaders have also volunteered to take up financial responsibilities through funding, investments, and provision of technology to support the educational achievement of public schools like Rocket ship education. Together these parties are set to improving the quality of teaching in public schools.
The parents in Rocket ship education are highly involved in the operations of the school. During the construction of the school’s branch in South East Washington, parents followed up with the building of the school. They were involved in the launching of the school and also took part in the hiring process of the teachers. The parents who have a say to their children future gave reviews on interviewed teachers, and the principal took their reviews into consideration while recruiting teachers.
