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 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 are expected to participate in a community of shared leadership—teaching and caring for students and leading students in service, travel, and fieldwork.
