When considering Rocky Mountain Deaf School as a placment for your student, we recomend scheduling a visit to the school and meeting for an informal conversation with our director. You may schedule an appointment with the front desk by either calling 303-984-5749 (voice) or 720-235-0565 (video phone). Because Colorado is a Parent Choice State, your child has the legal right to attend Rocky Mountain Deaf School, and your School district is legally required to pay for the tuition.

there a few more steps to complete:
