Join Our Team

While strong test scores have led us to being one of Denver's highest-performing elementary schools, the happiness and joy our scholars - and our staff - feel coming to school truly sets us apart.

We know amazing talent is the most important factor in supporting our scholars and our community - and we firmly believe that our commitment to staff wellness and culture plays a significant role in helping us achieve these results. We’re also particularly proud that our staff has voted us a Denver Post Top Workplace two years in a row.

At RMP, we live a culture of love. To us, love means holding people to high expectations because we care deeply about their success and because we know they are capable of outstanding accomplishments. Because we love our staff and our scholars, we also forgive mistakes and teach kindness, to both ourselves and others. Because we love RMP, we want to make each day joyful and filled with excitement about all we do as part of the RMP family.

Staff Testimonials

welcome to colorado

While many picture ski slopes and hot chocolate when they hear “Colorado,” Denver is so much more than that. Denver boasts the 10th largest downtown in the United States, and is a city filled with sunshine (literally!), diversity, a plethora of arts and activities, and is one of the fastest growing cities in the country.

With an incredible number of communities and community organizations - from affinity and community groups to religious institutions - the diversity of Denver provides a multitude of ways to connect with others.

Feeling like a foodie? In the last several years, Denver’s food scene has grown tremendously. From brunch to late-night snacks, you are guaranteed to find something delicious that satisfies.

With our seven professional sports teams, the nation’s largest performing arts complex, and thousands of concerts every year, you’ll find Denver has no shortage of things to do.

But don’t just take our word for it. Denver was ranked by US News and World Report as the #2 best place to live for 2017. Whether you are looking to meet your significant other (Denver is rated in the top 20 of US cities for singles!) or looking for a great place to live with your family (read more about what makes Denver an amazing family city), Denver provides experiences and a great place to live for all.
