Step 1: Discover


In Mapleton, there are no "neighborhood schools." That means instead of being automatically enrolled in your neighborhood school, we invite you to select from a full menu of schools based on the learning style, interests and passions of your child. 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. To learn more about Mapleton's schools and select the best school for you and your family, you may:

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.
    • Parents/guardians want to transfer students to a new school within Mapleton Public Schools 

We do our very best to place your child in your first-choice school. However, if we are unable to place your child in your first-choice school, we will make every effort to place your child in your second or third choice school. If you would like to place your child on a waitlist for your first choice school, please contact the Welcome Center, 303.853.1780. Visit our Welcome Center, 8990 York St., Thornton, for help with the online application or to submit documents in person.

   


Step 3: Succeed  


Once you have received notification of placement, visit your new school to start your educational journey in Mapleton! 

 

New applicants during the school year:

In-person applicants (at the Welcome Center) - Parents/guardians are welcome to complete either the online application or paper application in person at the Welcome Center. All required documents should be submitted when the application is completed. Parents/guardians will receive a confirmation form to take to the school to complete the registration process.
