Rocky Mountain Prep 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.
Rocky Mountain Prep Berkeley will enroll four-year-old prekindergarten (full-day), kindergarten (free full-day), and first through fifth grades in the 2020-21 school year.
RMP participates in the Denver Public SchoolChoice program. Round 1 is open from January 15 - February 18, 2020. 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.
Interested families are welcome to join us at RMP Berkeley for tours every Thursday at 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. Please call us at 720.464.3550 to schedule a tour.
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.
Scholars must turn four by October 1, 2020 to be eligible for prekindergarten. Scholars must turn five up to October 1, 2020 to be eligible for kindergarten.
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.

RMP will continue to distribute food at RMP Berkeley, RMP Southwest, and RMP Fletcher through our partnership with Revolution Foods through the end of the school year. Families can pick up 3 meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) at a time. All family members do not need to be present to pick up a meal. Children 1-18 will receive preference; adult members of the RMP community are eligible for meals as well. Any children 1-18 in the community are eligible to receive meals, not just RMP students.
Additionally, Denver Public Schools and Aurora Public Schools have meal distribution sites available to families. Please visit the following sites for more information:
We also want to make families aware of the Food Resource Hotline - 720-382-2920. This is a bilingual toll-free number that connects Coloradans to needed food and nutrition resources. Anyone in need can call. It is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Messages left after-hours or on a weekend will be returned the next business day. (If you are hearing impaired, call Relay Colorado at 7-1-1 or 1-800-659-2656.)
To be able to work with passionate, dedicated people like the staff at RMP Berkeley is a dream come true. The RMP Berkeley family believes in every scholar, loves them unconditionally, and is dedicated to working relentlessly with the community to give every scholar the educational experience they deserve.
