Job Description

ABOUT ROCKY MOUNTAIN PREP

There are many public charter schools and many models. Rocky Mountain Prep prides itself on being different. We balance rigor and love - taking head on the challenges that make a person academically successful and building the relationships that make them emotionally independent. We teach our scholars through our PEAK values of Perseverance, Excellence, Adventure, and Kindness, and we strive to value our scholars as people, not just as numbers pointing to achievement. Our model has made us one of the most successful networks in Denver - leading our scholars to both academic success, and more importantly, to a love of learning rooted in a joyful school and a tight-knit community.
RMP is committed to hiring staff representing diverse backgrounds and experiences. We have made it our goal to partner with diverse communities and we know that the better we are at hiring from backgrounds that challenge our own understanding, the better we will be at educating the scholars that need it the most. Diversity means a lot of different things and a Rocky Mountain Prep Teacher is one that embraces what makes them unique and uses that as a guiding force in becoming an excellent educator.
