I have been in Mapleton for 8 years. There has been multiple ups and downs, but over all its great. Mapleton is expanding very fast. There are new buildings being built for more schools. The clubs and activities are great. There are many great programs for all the different interest for all students. The sports are doing very well. The Mapleton Varsity Soccer team has won their first State Championship in the year 2019-2020. All the other sports are also doing well. The teachers in Mapleton are great. They care about the wellbeing of their students. They do their best for their students. Mapleton is starting to be an amazing place to enroll to.

The thing I enjoyed about Mapleton Public Schools was the connection you could have with the teachers. A lot of schools are on a larger scale and you can't necessarily build a genuine connection with some of the teachers there. But with schools in the Mapleton district, you have the opportunity to build a professional yet genuine relationship with teachers. This is because since the schools are on a smaller scale than other schools, teachers can put more time and focus onto students that need that extra bit of help or even just be a friend with them.
I love that Mapleton Public Schools is not just a district its a family. Each individual school in this district has a family. Mapleton Public Schools might not be the richest district but it makes the best of what they have. They teach the students to go above in beyond with their education. Pushing every student to break test records and work hard in school. Post secondary counselors work so hard in order to help the students go to their dream school and figure out different ways in order to get there. Every school has its story but Mapleton gives you open doors to so many opportunities students never believed they could receive. I believe Mapleton Public Schools is perfect every school has its flaws but the good out weighs the bad here.
