Students and Families

  • Families Welcome to Mapleton Public Schools!

    Mapleton Public Schools is an internationally accredited public school district located in the Thornton/North Denver area of unincorporated Adams County. We are committed to raising expectations, providing choices for learning, and removing obstacles for all students so that we can guarantee all students achieve their dreams and enthusiastically contribute to their community, country, and world.

    Located in one of the fastest-growing counties in Colorado, Mapleton covers 25 square miles with new neighborhoods and developments popping up every year.

    Mapleton serves more than 7,000 students in small-by-design brick-and-mortar schools and one K-12 online school.  Each student comes from a unique background with their own set of talents, interests, circumstances, and motivations. Mapleton offers a robust preschool program with full-day and half-day options for 3-and-4-year olds, in-person and online learning opportunities for students in grades K-12, and an alternate pathway to high school graduation for young adults up to age 21.
