Rocketship Rising Stars

Summary:

Rocketship Rising Stars is a public charter elementary school in San Jose, California, serving students from kindergarten to 5th grade. With a diverse student population, the school consistently outperforms the state average in academic assessments, particularly for certain student subgroups.

Rocketship Rising Stars boasts impressive academic performance, with proficiency rates of 64.5% in English Language Arts and 65.35% in Math, well above the state averages. The school's strong performance is especially notable for Asian students, who rank 136th out of 1,183 California elementary schools, and English Language Learners, who rank 74th out of 3,240. However, the school's high student-teacher ratio and chronic absenteeism rate of 31.4% are areas that warrant further investigation and potential improvement.

Compared to nearby schools, Rocketship Rising Stars generally outperforms its counterparts, including Rocketship Spark Academy, a sister charter school just 0.65 miles away. In contrast, Voices College-Bound Language Academy has significantly lower academic performance, which could be a concern for the Voices College-Bound Language Academy District. The high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch at Rocketship Rising Stars, ranging from 70.56% to 72.73%, also highlights the socioeconomic challenges faced by the school's diverse student population.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
