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 2020-21 school year.

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.

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.”

Please visit our Fall 2020 FAQs for updated information about our schedule and calendar.

RMP Creekside received a Meets Expectations or “Green” rating on the Denver Public Schools SPF in the 2018-2019 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. 

Note: Due to the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no updated SPF for the 2019-20 school year

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

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.

Scholars must turn 3 by October 1, 2020 to be eligible for ECE-3.  Scholars must turn 4 by October 1, 2020 to be eligible for ECE-4. Scholars must turn 5 by October 1, 2020 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. Note: Please visit the "lunch menus" tab above for additional information on our current food service offerings.

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.
