About Mapleton Public Schools
The mission of Mapleton Public Schools, a community that embraces its children through high-performing schools of choice, is to ensure that each student is empowered to achieve his or her dreams and contribute to his or her community, country and world.
Mapleton Public Schools has responded to the needs of its community by reinventing much of what public education looks like. When traditional school models stopped inspiring students, Mapleton explored academic options that would engage students and reenergize a comprehensive culture of learning. In 2006, Mapleton Public
Schools unveiled a reinvention plan focused on rigor, relevance, relationships and choice. The reinvention converted a system of traditional neighborhood elementary and middle schools and one large comprehensive high school to schools that are small-by-design. As a District of Choice, families choose a school that best fits the needs of their children. Mapleton provides transportation to all students living within the District, doing away with the limitations of the “neighborhood school.” Mapleton’s 16 schools that are small-by-design serve students ages 3-21.
