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.

RMP does not follow the Aurora Public Schools calendar. Our extended school year starts on August 10, 2021 for all Kinder-5th grade scholars, and on August 12, 2021 for our Prekindergarten scholars. The school year ends in mid-June to help prevent summer learning loss.
For the 2021-22 school year, Fletcher will move to the same schedule Monday through Friday.
Scholars must turn four by October 1, 2021 to be eligible for prekindergarten. Scholars must turn five by October 1, 2021 to be eligible for kindergarten.
Yes. All scholars are required to wear uniforms at RMP. All families should purchase through our vendor’s website. Families can purchase uniform pieces throughout the school year. If you need assistance with uniform purchases, please contact our front office.
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. We have four special education teachers and two interventionists who support our scholars with additional learning needs.

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.

All adults and students are required to wear masks or face shields when on school grounds. Masks will also be required for students riding the bus to/from school. RMP will provide masks for all students and staff but encourage students and staff to bring their own mask that they are comfortable in. If a scholar brings their own mask we ask that it is school appropriate.
If there is a positive case of COVID in the RMP community, we will quickly respond and quarantine portions of the school to ensure minimized transmission.

If a student or staff member is feeling sick, they will be supported in returning to their home as quickly as possible. If the scholar is exhibiting symptoms of COVID they will be sent to a monitored room until they can be safely picked up. If there is a positive case of COVID in the RMP community, we will quickly respond and quarantine portions of the school to ensure minimized transmission. Scholars who are showing symptoms but still able to participate in learning will be able to transition to remote learning.
If your child is sick and you are concerned it might be related to COVID-19, the most important step is to seek guidance from a medical professional. Please contact your doctor or see below for additional resources for school-based health clinics. If your child is unwell, please:
1. Quarantine your child to limit the possible spread of illness to others
2. Call the school to report your child’s absence and be ready to share information about symptoms, duration of illness, and relevant dates (such as when your child was last at school or date of exposure)
3. Keep your child at home until they are cleared to return by the school - we will follow the guidance of local health officials to make this determination
