Evidence of Program's Success

Since our first year in 2012, Rocky Mountain Prep students have, on average, gained 150% of expected growth each year in math, reading, and writing using nationally normed assessments (NWEA MAP, STEP Reading Assessment). This growth has increased the number of students performing on grade level by 30% each year, ultimately resulting in students leaving our school on grade level in each subject.
