While no two days are the same, we wanted to provide a high level overview of what a typical day looks like for teachers at RMP:
The salary range for teachers at RMP is between $58,000 - $110,000 and is based on years of experience. Years count as full years spent lead teaching in American public K-12 schools and public Pre-K programs. We define a “lead teacher” as the primary teacher in the classroom who was responsible for all academic instruction. Teachers will have the option to apply for additional leadership roles if they wish. These leadership roles come with stipends ranging from $1,000 - $3,000. Teachers are also eligible for performance pay up to $1,500 - $3,000 if the data metrics (goals) are met for the role.

We are thrilled to launch our PEAK Teacher program at Rocky Mountain Prep for the 2022-23 school year! PEAK Teachers represent the top-performing teachers in our network according to both scholar achievement data and observations, and we are thrilled to recognize and celebrate them in this way.

What is special about working at RMP is the opportunity for growth. Even though I have taught for three years, I am still learning and improving my teaching craft. It has also given me the chance to step more into leadership roles to develop me, not just in teaching, but in coaching, and in curriculum.Marissa Caine 3rd Grade Math Lead Teacher
Teaching at RMP is special to me because my children attend the school. I get to see the values I teach at the school and how my daughters learn from them every day. RMP feels like a big family that is always there to support me.Sandra Cardenas Autism Center Teaching Assistant
RMP has helped me grow as a leader because of the constant support and coaching I've received to become the educator I am today. Learning and being coached by strong educators themselves, only influenced me to do the same.Allyssa Ross 4th Grade Lead Teacher
