Mapleton offers 18 schools that are small-by-design with different education models, including Expeditionary Learning, International Baccalaureate, STEM, University Partnership, Big Picture, Young Adult, and online, to name a few.

    How do I know if I need to select a new school for my child if they already attend a Mapleton school? 

    Students will be automatically rolled up into the next grade at their current school unless your student meets one of the reasons below:

      • The student is in a school that does not offer a continuing grade level as part of their design will need to choose a choose. For example, an 8th grader attending a Prek - 8th grade school will need to select a school that offers 9th grade.
      • All current preschool students turning 5 years old by October 1 will need to select a school for kindergarten. Preschool students are not automatically enrolled in kindergarten at their current school.
