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 Creekside will enroll prekindergarten three-year-olds (half-day), prekindergarten four-year-olds (full-day), kindergarten (free, full-day) and first through fifth grades in the 2019-20 school year.

RMP participates in the Denver Public SchoolChoice program. Round 2 opens April 3, 2019 and is open through August 30, 2019 for all grades except ECE. Round 2 enrollment is first-come, first-served.

Yes! We hold tours on Thursday at 9:00 am or 1:00 pm. Please call us at 720-863-8920 x100 to RSVP or head to our website and click on “Enroll.”

RMP Creekside 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 the middle of June to help prevent summer learning loss. Three-year-old prekindergarten offers half-day morning (8:00 am - 11:30 pm) and afternoon (12:30 pm- 4:00 pm) sessions Monday through Thursday.

RMP Creekside received a Meets Expectations or “Green” rating on the Denver Public Schools SPF in the 2017-2018 school year. We are particularly proud that for the fourth year in a row, our scholars had the highest math proficiency rates among any DPS school with a majority of students eligible for free or reduced lunch. Every year, the SPF rates schools based on such categories as parent satisfaction, academic excellence, student attendance, etc. Schools are rated on a color scale ranging from “Red”, the lowest - Accredited on Probation - to “Blue”, the highest - Distinguished.

RMP Creekside is located in Southeast Denver at 7808 Cherry Creek South Drive, #3-300, Denver, CO 80231.

Scholars must turn 3 by October 1, 2019 to be eligible for ECE-3.  Scholars must turn 4 by October 1, 2019 to be eligible for ECE-4. Scholars must turn 5 by October 1, 2019 to be eligible for Kindergarten.

Yes. All scholars are required to wear uniforms at RMP. All families should purchase a uniform over the summer. Families can also purchase extra uniform pieces throughout the school year. We offer a uniform payment plan for families who may need assistance.

Each three-year-old and four-year-old prekindergarten classroom is taught by a lead teacher and a teaching fellow. In first through fifth grade, one teaching fellow provides additional support for the grade level.

Prekindergarten classrooms have 16 scholars. There are around 30 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.

K-5 scholars will be given homework each evening. The expectation is that this homework is done and completed every night and returned to school the next day. Teachers will check the homework and send it back to you with feedback if there are concerns. Teachers will not send back homework if it was done correctly. Pre-K scholars are required to complete a nightly reading log for homework.

RMP Creekside collaborates with Way to Go - School Pool, a service that connects families in the same neighborhood to share in the responsibility of getting scholars to and from school. RMP Creekside also provides limited bus transportation. Currently, our bus stops are:
