Thank you for your interest in RMSEL

RMSEL is a public, K-12 school of choice serving students from five Denver-area school districts: Aurora, Cherry Creek, Denver, Douglas County, and Littleton.  The school, founded in 1993, is a learning community designed around multidisciplinary, integrated, learning expeditions.  Expeditionary Learning is a break-the-mold concept for public education that places emphasis on high academic achievement as well as on character development.  We believe that, given the right support and a caring and compassionate learning environment, all students can and want to learn.  Our standards-based portfolio assessment system makes explicit the criteria by which success can be measured and documents the accomplishment of high academic and character standards.

All staff at RMSEL enjoy a high degree of autonomy and are expected to participate in a community of shared leadership -- teaching and caring for students; developing curriculum; leading students in service, travel, and fieldwork; and engaging in professional development.
