Lead Teachers

The salary range for teachers at RMP is between $52,000 - $85,000 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 22-23 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.

We believe we have a moral imperative as a community to pay our highest performing teachers an incredibly competitive salary. At Rocky Mountain Prep, that means salaries of $80,000 - 110,000 per year for each of our PEAK Teachers including bonuses and stipends.

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 tenth 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 2021. Whether you are looking to meet your significant other (Denver is rated in the top 3 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.
