Mariposa Elementary School's staff, with excellent support and involvement of our parents and community, is committed to emphasizing academic and social achievement at the highest levels of excellence and to meeting the unique needs of all students with standards-based academics along with visual and performing-arts oriented programs.
Though it is a rigorous academic environment, there is a profound sense of student happiness on the campus. The children are animated in their play, and engaged in their lessons. Mariposa is an educational environment supported by caring adults and a belief system that supports both the academic growth and the emotional needs of all children. Students are guided by our long tradition of the Five Keys to Success; responsibility, organization, flexible thinking, pride, and contribution. These essential elements of knowledge and character provide a basis for sound educational practices and also serve as character education. The collective result is a responsible and capable student body, preparing for a global society. Branching out, the Visual and Performing Arts (music, art and movement) are integrated into the daily curriculum. The day begins with music from the Composer of the Month over the outdoor speakers. Students perform in weekly Flag Ceremony assemblies, the school chorus, band, and classroom plays. Hands-on experience and discovery can be seen in our gardens. We work on physical strength through our twice weekly Running Club. Mariposa is a safe nurturing environment where all students can find variety of opportunities for learning, building confidence, and developing responsibility.
Dear Mariposa Elementary School Families,

Mariposa is rich with tradition and a place where students achieve at high levels of academic rigor. I look forward to building relationships with all students, staff, families and community members to continue to provide a strong academic and safe environment conducive to student achievement.
I look forward to bringing my experiences and being able to integrate those experiences into the culture of Mariposa. I am committed to helping provide academic experiences that are rigorous and relevant as well as assist students in building positive relationships that help them be successful individuals around campus and in the community.
I look forward to getting to know you and your children. If you have any questions, comments, concerns or just want to introduce yourself please feel free to stop by the office. I will be happy to meet you.
