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 our commitment to staff wellness and culture plays a significant role in helping us achieve these results.
At Rocky Mountain Prep, 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 fill each day with joy and excitement and demonstrate what this means to us as part of teaching in Colorado and in the RMP family.
