Rocky Mountain Academy offers the only public K-8 option in the Denver mountain communities. Our program includes the rigor of Core Knowledge curriculum and high expectations for community involvement from students and parents. We serve more than 350 students who all take Spanish, Art, and Music continually throughout the year. K-5 students receive direct technology instruction, while the lab serves as an extension of the classes in middle school. Staff continues to hone skills in working with highly capable kids, integrating technology into learning, and raising the bar in literacy instruction. Generous funding from our PTO enables our teachers to stay abreast of best practices. From the Jeffco website
