Preston Smith, his Ten-Year Tenure at Rocketship Education, and The Many Lessons He’s Learned

Preston Smith is a co-founder of Rocketship Education, established in 2007 by himself and business partner John Danner in the San Francisco Bay Area, known around the world for formulating some of the most innovative business entities, organizations, products, and services. Rocketship Education is by no means short on innovation, having been one of the pioneers in personalized education lead by technological devices and custom educational software.

Rocketship Education recently hit its ten-year anniversary. Let’s look over several lessons that Preston Smith has been subject to throughout his first decade at the leading network of public charter schools.

Bases of employees should consist of the average demographic profile of the particular classes they teach. While Rocketshp Education doesn’t segregate classrooms based on nationality, race, ethnicity, or other demographical characteristics, it does group classrooms based on well-rounded demographic profiles. Teachers are hired in the proportion of students. For example, if one location has 60% Mexicans, 30% Koreans, and 10% whites spread across ten classrooms, admins will strive to hire 6 Mexican teachers, 3 Korean teachers, and 1 white teacher.

Parents should always be ready to ship their students away to other, nearby schools. Sometimes, educational institutions just don’t cut it in quality of education. As such, it’s important for parents to go through with their threats of moving students to other schools, even if it means taking them away from Rocketship Education’s facilities.

New plans, like the flex model from a few years ago, aren’t always guaranteed to be implemented. The flex model was tested at a few schools in Rocketship’s network. While some schools did very well with the program, which featured three teachers per oversized classroom with one school leader to oversee their performance, the fact that not every school succeeded was of concern, causing Preston Smith to roll back the flex model and never bring it to any schools again.

Rocketship Education has 18 locations across the United States, as far north as Wisconsin and as south as southern California. Twelve of these facilities are in Preston Smith’s and Rocketship Education’s home state of California, three in Nashville, one in Milwaukee, and two in the nation’s capital, Washington D.C.
