School Description and Mission Statement (School Year 2020–2021)
Rocketship Education is reinventing the elementary school, education model.
Each student is unique at Rocketship Mateo Sheedy, so individual instruction is a critical component for achievement. This manifests through a purposeful focus on guided reading within literacy classes, the use of centers and pull out groups in math, research-based social/emotional learning, and so much more! Student success is measured by ongoing formal and informal checkpoints for students throughout the year in alignment with our grade-level benchmarks in both math and literacy. STEP/F&P reading indicators, common core standard alignment, and NWEA MAP data are utilized to inform differentiated instruction for all students at Rocketship Mateo Sheedy.
The Rocketship model allows each school to implement an array of classes and an individualized approach to learning. In our program, teachers employ in-class intervention for all students, implementing data-driven instructional strategies in class. Rocketship Mateo Sheedy also utilizes a robust Response to Intervention program, which allows educators to address the individual needs of every student below grade level. For students identified as below grade level or with further instructional needs, Rocketship Mateo Sheedy utilizes evidence-based interventions and strategies to ensure that all Rocketeers will be able to realize the 1.5 years of academic growth that are necessary for them to lay the foundation for college readiness.
Rocketship Mateo Sheedy offers unique opportunities for students to practice and hone the 21st-century skills of communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking now more than ever during distance learning. Rocketship has been working to ensure student access to the technology needed for students to participate and thrive in an online community of their peers and dedicated teams of teachers.
Every single day, Rocketship Mateo Sheedy offers social-emotional learning (SEL) support and gives Rocketeers (students) multiple spaces to explore their feelings and receive guidance in their class communities as well as from a certified mental health provider. Rocketship Mateo Sheedy also offers a suite of engaging choice-based interest clubs to allow students extracurricular exploration with their grade level counterparts. Some of the interest clubs Rocketeers will be participating in this year include the cooking arts, drawing, outdoor exploration, debate, and more! Rocketship Mateo Sheedy also offers dedicated science instruction for all K-5 students. Rocketeers (students) in grades 3-5 will engage with grade-level science and STEM content through various media, hands-on demonstrations, and experiment-based learning.
In order to ensure the highest quality education for our students, Rocketship teachers, individualized learning specialists, special education teachers, paraprofessionals, operations specialists, enrichment coordinators, and school leaders receive extensive training and support. All staff members participate in summer professional development for three weeks before starting school, engage in formal weekly professional development training, and also receive additional development on seven other in-service days throughout the school year. Each staff member also has a personal coach, with whom they closely collaborate daily to improve their instructional practice.
Together, all members of the Rocketship Mateo Sheedy community are lifelong learners that strive to push past the boundaries of conventional public school education. Rocketeers from Rocketship Mateo Sheedy will leave prepared for higher education--equipped with the knowledge that they have the potential to achieve any goal and with the foundational skills and habits they will need to get there.
