Rocketship Education: Providing an Alternative Learning Method

The student population in the United States is increasing, and along with the rising numbers is the need for alternative facilities that would provide education to the American children. Another problem being faced by the United States is the growing number of poor households who are starting to feel that they could no longer send their children to school. Because of what is going on in the United States, the government appealed to private entities to help them out with providing education to the children. The result of the plea from the government is alternative learning centers that provide quality education to the children for a low price. One of these education institutions founded to become an alternative learning facility is Rocketship Education.

Established in 2007, Rocketship Education is now establishing their presence all across the United States. Since 2017, the educational system has 18 branches, and they are operating in the states of California, where the majority of the schools are located. They also have branches in Wisconsin, Tennessee, and Washington D.C. The people behind the establishment of Rocketship Education wanted their students to experience a different way of learning. Those who were given a chance to study at a Rocketship Education school stated that their learning is not only focused on the academics, but the teachers are also focusing on how they could develop their talents and skills. They are also being taught about how to become a responsible citizen for the nation’s advantage.

Aside from teaching the students on how to become better persons and training them to harness their talents and skills, Rocketship Education is also caring about their student’s personal life. They would sometimes send a teacher to their student’s home, and they will be observed. The teacher would also take down notes on how the student is behaving at home, and by applying what the teacher has witnessed, they can create their techniques on how to teach the child. The approach of Rocketship Education to teaching their students is effective, and one of the proofs that they are proud to display is their constant high scores in national exams.
