Student, Mapleton Early College High School, Class of 2016,
The typical Mapleton Early College student is not like a typical student at high school. This is because our school is structured very differently from other schools. The types of students that should attend our high school are students who are very interested in learning what their passionate about. This is because typical students here learn to become responsible young adults who enjoy going out into the world to learn what they are interested in through internships as well as independent projects. Students at Mapleton are independent because we are able to do work on our own without a teacher telling us what to do and when to do it. Our school treats us like adults because students here are expected to act like adults. We are students who strive to be better and have goals to go to college. If a student wants to go to college in the future then this school is for them because it's a common goal among almost every student.
