Rosie the Riveter Charter High School opened in 2007 to offer families the opportunity for a strong educational academic for students in 9th through 12th grades. The school focuses on female students with courses based upon construction-related math and technology. This prepares the students for life after high school, including apprenticeships or trade schools.
The school curriculum is based upon adult programs as well as youth programs. That includes pre-apprenticeship courses, green jobs and recruitment opportunities for younger students. There is also a youth build program that helps students study for a GED or high school diploma and receiving on the job training while building homes for the community.
Parents and students are very pleased with the teaching formats offered at the school. This school gives adults as well as youths the opportunity to have a second chance at education. The teachers are rated very highly and they really do care about all students becoming successful. The student’s love that the school focuses on career training that is not necessarily, what women would choose to do like construction or firefighting.
The Academic Performance Index showed an increase of 11 points from the previous year to a score of 936. The statewide goal is 800. Parents could not be more pleased with the score. Teachers are highly praised for their efforts to stay above the statewide goal.
