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. Round 2 of enrollment is currently open and closes 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 from 8:20am - 3:30pm, Monday through Friday. RMP does not follow the Denver Public Schools calendar. Our extended school year starts the second week of August and ends in early June. View our academic calendar here.

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.
Due to new restrictions due to COVID, and DPS needing to decrease transportation to ensure safety, RMP Berkeley will not be providing transportation at this time.
RMP Berkeley is located at 3752 Tennyson St, Denver, CO 80212.
At Rocky Mountain Prep, safety is our top priority for our students, their families, and our staff. It is our responsibility to create the conditions that will ensure our students have the opportunity to engage in excellent academics and joyful learning, while also balancing the safety of each individual during this global crisis.
We follow the guidance of our authorizing districts on operating in-person throughout the pandemic.
For families who have chosen to remain in remote learning, we will continue to ensure families have a fully remote option through our Virtual Academy in the 21-22 school year. We remain committed to supporting you and your students under the complex and challenging circumstances that continue to be presented by the pandemic. Please don’t hesitate to call us if you would like to speak to someone directly.
All adults and students are required to wear masks or face shields when on school grounds. Masks will also be required for students riding the bus to/from school. RMP will provide masks for all students and staff but encourage students and staff to bring their own mask that they are comfortable in. If a scholar brings their own mask we ask that it is school appropriate.
If there is a positive case of COVID in the RMP community, we will quickly respond and quarantine portions of the school to ensure minimized transmission. Staff and students that are sick will not be permitted to return to school until they are healthy and have cleared criteria to return, which could include quarantining for up to 14 days. We want to minimize the spread of infection and we will continue to follow the guidelines put forth by our partners at the health department and our authorizing school districts. Learn more about our safety protocols and procedures here.
Free COVID testing is available to all Rocky Mountain Prep students, families, and staff through a partnership with COVIDCheck Colorado.
Family members -- including RMP Fletcher families and students -- should use the community link: covidcheckcolorado.org
We encourage everyone in the community to utilize this resource and continue to take all health precautions like frequent hand-washing, mask-wearing, and social distancing to ensure we can protect our students and staff who will be learning in-person this semester.
If a student or staff member is feeling sick, they will be supported in returning to their home as quickly as possible. If the scholar is exhibiting symptoms of COVID they will be sent to a monitored room until they can be safely picked up. If there is a positive case of COVID in the RMP community, we will quickly respond and quarantine portions of the school to ensure minimized transmission. Scholars who are showing symptoms but still able to participate in learning will be able to transition to remote learning.
If your child is sick and you are concerned it might be related to COVID-19, the most important step is to seek guidance from a medical professional. Please contact your doctor or see below for additional resources for school-based health clinics. If your child is unwell, please:
1. Quarantine your child to limit the possible spread of illness to others
2. Call the school to report your child’s absence and be ready to share information about symptoms, duration of illness, and relevant dates (such as when your child was last at school or date of exposure)
3. Keep your child at home until they are cleared to return by the school - we will follow the guidance of local health officials to make this determination
