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 will enroll prekindergarten (full-day), kindergarten (free, full-day), and first through fifth grade in the 2020-21 school year. RMP Fletcher is home to an Autism Center for scholars in kindergarten through fifth grade. If you believe your child may be eligible for this program, contact APS’ office of Exceptional Student Services at 303-340-0510 for enrollment information.
Open enrollment for RMP Fletcher begins in December and we will hold a lottery for school spots in early March. We highly encourage families to complete the application as soon as possible to secure their spot in the lottery.

Students in Grades 3-5 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. Students in Grades K-2 participate in a social-emotional learning curriculum called Second Step. Second Step includes lessons and activities that facilitate a safe and inclusive classroom environment. Prekindergarten scholars experience social-emotional learning embedded throughout their academic curriculum.
Prekindergarten classrooms have 16 scholars, and all prekindergarten classrooms have two teachers. There are 26-30 students in each kindergarten through fifth-grade classroom. All students get quality one-on-one and small group time with instructors throughout the day to ensure individual needs are met.

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.
