Rocketship Fuerza Community Prep District


Rocketship Fuerza Community Prep is the sole elementary public charter school in the Rocketship Fuerza Community Prep District, serving grades K-5 with a total enrollment of 560 students in San Jose, California. The school's performance has declined in recent years, with its SchoolDigger ranking dropping from 1756 out of 5789 California elementary schools in 2018-2019 to 3217 out of 5848 in 2022-2023, and its rating decreasing from 3 stars to 2 stars out of 5.

Rocketship Fuerza Community Prep faces significant academic challenges, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science all falling below the statewide averages. The school's student population is predominantly Hispanic (78.75%), with a high percentage (75.36%) of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage. Additionally, the school has a concerning chronic absenteeism rate of 29.8%, which is substantially higher than the state average.

These findings suggest that the Rocketship Fuerza Community Prep District and the school itself need to implement targeted interventions and support systems to address the academic and attendance challenges faced by their students, particularly those from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. Implementing culturally responsive teaching practices and support systems may also be crucial in addressing the unique needs of the school's predominantly Hispanic student population.
