Rocketship Nashville Northeast

In 2010, Rocketship Education touched down in Nashville to explore the option to bring more excellent schools to Tennessee. Four years later, Rocketship opened Nashville Northeast Elementary (RNNE) to serve hundreds of Rocketeers and their families. All kids deserve a great school in their own community. Students at Rocketship schools make remarkable progress every year. In a single school year, Rocketeers (that's what we call our students) achieve a year and a half of growth in math and reading. Our focus on personalized learning and parent engagement allows us to meet the unique needs of each and every student we serve.

Population(s) Served

At United Academy, we are on a mission to eliminate the achievement gap in our lifetime. We tenaciously do whatever it takes and use every minute to ensure that ALL students are engaged and inspired to achieve excellence in academics, character, critical thinking, and communication. By achieving excellence in these areas, our Rocketeers will be equipped to make critical decisions that positively affect themselves, their families, and their communities.
