    About Us

    At Mapleton Public Schools, we believe school choice is the first step toward academic success. In Mapleton, there are no "neighborhood schools." You choose your school; we provide the transportation.

    All Mapleton schools are small, safe, family-like learning environments where teachers discover what students already know and focus on what they need to learn. All schools are also small-by-design, meaning each school allows students to master content standards through a unique lens. School models include:

    • Big Picture
    • Dual Language
    • Expeditionary Learning (EL)
    • Gifted and Talented
    • International Leadership
    • Online K-12
    • Performing and Visual Arts
    • Project-Based Learning
    • STEM
    • University Partnerships
    • Young Adult 

    In Mapleton, there is a school for every student. Which school will you choose?

  • School Finder Use School Finder to search Mapleton's schools by school model, location, grade level, programs, and more!
