District Performing Arts

Mapleton Public Schools is proud to offer a robust Performing Arts program to all registered Mapleton students grades 6-12. These programs include band, choir, and orchestra, with grades 7-12 participating in our Zero Hour program at either our Skyview Campus or at our new Mapleton Arts Center (MAC) on the Broadway Campus. 6th grade students are offered band, choir and orchestra as beginning classes in all of our K-6 and K-8 schools during the normal school day. In addition, extra-curricular after-school opportunities include Drama, Color Guard, Mariachi and Jazz Band. These programs emphasize the art of live performance.

Before School  - Zero Hour Music Ensemble Classes  

Our Zero Hour occurs Monday through Friday from 7:10-8:00 a.m. on one of our two performing arts campuses. These classes are open to any student grades 7-12 and because these music ensembles are offered to students at the district level, we have the potential to have some of the largest performing groups in the metro area. Each of these ensembles present concerts, participate in field trips, and perform at festivals and events throughout the Denver metro area.
