Rocky Mountain Prep 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.
Rocky Mountain Prep Southwest will enroll prekindergarten (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 1 is open from January 15 - February 18, 2020.

In the past, it has opened around April and closed in August. Round 2 enrollment is first-come, first served.

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.
Prekindergarten classrooms have 16 scholars. There are no more than 28 students in each kindergarten through fifth grade classroom.
