Rocky Mountain Prep (RMP) is an innovative, tuition-free 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 Fletcher enrolls prekindergarten (full-day), kindergarten (free, full-day), and first through fifth grades.
Open enrollment for RMP Fletcher begins on December 2 and we will hold a lottery for school spots on March 3. We highly encourage families to complete the enrollment paperwork as soon as possible to secure their spot in the lottery.
Yes! Interested families are welcome to attend tours of RMP Fletcher on Thursdays at 9:00 am or 1:00 pm. Please call us at 720.863.8922 to RSVP or for more information.
RMP Fletcher 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 Aurora Public Schools calendar. Our extended school year starts the second week of August and ends in mid-June to help prevent summer learning loss.
Scholars must turn four by October 1, 2020, to be eligible for prekindergarten. Scholars must turn five by October 1, 2020, to be eligible for kindergarten.
Yes. All scholars are required to wear uniforms at RMP. All families should purchase uniforms 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.
Scholars 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 scholars develop a deep sense of who they are and an understanding of the purpose in their lives. Scholars 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 and two teachers. There are 26-30 scholars in each kindergarten through fifth-grade classroom. Our overall student to teacher ratio is nine to one, which helps us ensure all scholars get quality one-on-one and small group time with instructors throughout the day.

Kindergarten through fifth-grade scholars will be given approximately 35 minutes of 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. A monthly calendar is provided with ideas for simple, engaging activities to complete at home.
