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 Berkeley enrolls four-year-old prekindergarten (full-day), kindergarten (free full-day), and first through fifth grades.
RMP participates in the Denver Public SchoolChoice program. Round 1 is open from mid-January to mid-February. For specific dates please check the DPS website. We highly encourage families to apply during Round 1 to more likely to receive their first choice. Please check the Denver Public Schools website for when round 2 begins. In the past, it has opened around April and closed in August. Round 2 enrollment is first-come, first served.
To ensure scholar safety we are not offering tours at this time. We are offering weekly virtual info sessions Thursdays at 1pm. Please call 720.464.3550 to RSVP or click “enroll” on our website to complete a short form.
RMP Berkeley 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 - 12:30 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 in late June to help prevent summer learning loss.

Yes. All scholars are required to wear uniforms at RMP. Families should purchase a uniform over the summer. You may also purchase extra uniform pieces throughout the school year. We offer a uniform payment plan for families who may need assistance.
Students participate in an age-appropriate, self-directed, competency-based social-emotional learning curriculum based on the Compass Circle model developed by Valor Collegiate Academies. The overarching goal is that students develop a deep sense of who they are and an understanding of the purpose in their lives. Students are taught social-emotional relational skills including how to productively express their emotions, resonate with others, share with vulnerability, and build safety and belonging for others.
Prekindergarten classrooms have 16 scholars. There are no more than 28 students in each kindergarten through fifth-grade classroom.
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.
We deeply value the connection between home and school and know that the more scholars and families practice academic skills together, the more scholars will be invested in their schoolwork. You can expect your Pre-K through 2nd-grade scholar to have 20 mins of reading and 10 mins of skills work each night. 3rd through 5th-grade scholars are expected to read 20 minutes and complete 15 mins of skills work each night.
