About This School

Rocky Point Charter School is located in Redding, CA and is one of 15 schools in Gateway Unified School District. It is a charter school that serves students in grades K-8.

Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Rocky Point Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

A school's Academic Performance Index (API) is a scale that ranges from 200 to 1000 and is calculated from the school's performance in the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program. The state has set 800 as the API target for all schools to meet.

Rocky Point Charter School had an API growth score of 804 in 2012. California uses the Academic Performance Index (API) to measure annual school performance and year-to-year improvement. Rocky Point Charter School's 2012 base score was 801 and the school did meet its 2012 school-wide growth target.

In 2008, Rocky Point Charter School had 21 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The California average is 24 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

I have had my two daughters at Rocky Point since the school opened.  The school grows stronger and offers more educational challenges each year.  My daughters are achieving above grade level and love going to school!  What more can a parent ask for!

I am so pleased with the education my daughter is receiving at Rocky Point.  She is challenged academically while also challenged physically.  I wouldn't send her anywhere else.  Love the staff and small school environment.

short and sweet. The teachers are great however Rocky Point is very unorganized and sports are rare. There are not many students but there are not many teachers either. Class size is the same as a public school.

This is a wonderful place - PE included!  My son has excelled in this pro-child, pro-curiosity environment.  Paperwork takes a back seat to ACTUAL LEARNING, which is a blessing in these NCLB dog days of testing, testing, and more testing!  My child's advanced reading and math abilities are considered in his placement, as are his social skills and maturity.  This school definitely cares for the WHOLE child, and not just what they can do on testing day.
