Rocky Mountain Prep (RMP) is an innovative, public charter school network. We educate students in prekindergarten through fifth grade with the rigorous academic preparation, character development, and individualized support necessary to succeed in a four-year college and life. Our values-driven culture combined with a college-prep curriculum drives our scholars to success. RMP scholars and staff work hard to uphold our core PEAK values – Perseverance, Excellence, Adventure, and Kindness – on a daily basis.
RMP Creekside enrolls prekindergarten three-year-olds (half-day), prekindergarten four-year-olds (full-day), kindergarten (free, full-day) and first through fifth grades in the 2018-19 school year.
RMP participates in the Denver Public SchoolChoice program. Round 1 is open from February 1 - 28, 2018. We highly encourage families to apply during Round 1 to more likely receive their first choice. Round 2 opens mid-April 2018 and is open through August 31, 2018. Round 2 enrollment is first-come, first-served.
Yes! We hold tours on Wednesdays at 9:00 am or 1:15 pm. Please call us to RSVP: 720-863-8920 x100. We will also host open houses at our Creekside campus beginning at 8:00 am on January 24, February 7, and February 21.
RMP Creekside scholars attend school for an extended day from 7:45 am - 4:00 pm Monday through Thursday. On Fridays, scholars attend school for a half day, from 7:45 am - 1:00 pm. Teachers attend professional development in the afternoons. RMP does not follow the Denver Public Schools calendar. Our extended school year starts the second week of August and ends at the end of June to help prevent summer learning loss. Three-year-old prekindergarten offers half-day morning (8:00 am - 12:30 pm) and afternoon (1:30 - 4:00 pm) sessions Monday through Thursday.
RMP Creekside received a Distinguished or “Blue” rating on the Denver Public Schools SPF in the 2016-17 school year. Every year, the SPF rates schools based on such categories as parent satisfaction, academic excellence, student attendance, etc. Schools are rated on a color scale ranging from “Red”, the lowest - Accredited on Probation - to “Blue”, the highest - Distinguished. This means that RMP Creekside is one of the top ranked schools in the district, with only 20 DPS schools receiving Distinguished ratings.
RMP Creekside is located in Southeast Denver at 7808 Cherry Creek South Drive, #3-300, Denver, CO 80231.
Scholars must turn three before October 1, 2018 to be eligible for three-year-old prekindergarten. Scholars must turn four before October 1, 2018 to be eligible for four-year-old prekindergarten. Scholars must turn five before October 1, 2018 to be eligible for kindergarten.
Yes. All scholars are required to wear uniforms at RMP. All families should purchase a uniform over the summer. Families can also purchase extra uniform pieces throughout the school year. We offer a uniform payment plan for families who may need assistance.
Each prekindergarten and kindergarten classroom is taught by a lead teacher and a teaching fellow. In first through fifth grade, one teaching fellow provides additional support across three different classrooms.
Yes. All RMP students receive free breakfast and a snack and students who qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch will also receive free lunch. RMP partners with Revolution Foods to provide healthy meal options for our scholars.
Kindergarten through fifth grade scholars will be given homework each evening, which will always include reading.. The expectation is that this homework is done and completed every night and returned to school the next day. Teachers will check the homework and send it back to you with feedback if there are concerns. Teachers will not send back homework if it was done correctly. Pre-K scholars are required to complete a nightly reading log for homework. A monthly calendar is provided with ideas for simple, engaging activities to complete at home.
RMP Creekside collaborates with Way to Go - School Pool, a service that connects families in the same neighborhood to share in the responsibility of getting scholars to and from school.
RMP Creekside also provides limited bus transportation. Currently, our bus stops are:

RMP Creekside partners with Kids Adventure for before- and after-school care from 6:30 am - 6:00 pm for our four-year-old pre-kindergarten through fifth grade scholars. Kids Adventure provides structured homework and other fun activities. RMP Creekside also offers after school enrichment opportunities for scholars such as Spanish, soccer, dance, and robotics for a cost.
I have been with RMP since its founding year and Creekside scholars and staff alike continue to inspire me every day. I am so fortunate to work with a group of spirited and passionate individuals who share one mission - to provide an exceptional education for all.
