Our school of around 215 students, established in 1899, is located on the Blackall Range with views over the Sunshine Coast. Our spacious grounds are very well maintained and always look very green due to regular rainfall. Our motto at Mapleton State School is 'Top of the Range' and we have continued to live up to this motto as we work towards achieving our goals. We are very proud of our school which maintains an excellent reputation in the community.
The ‘Mapleton Way’ is incorporated into the curriculum and values program to position Mapleton children to be life-long learners with the skills and attributes we value now and in the future. The school-wide pedagogical principles are:
- Care for Ourselves
- Care for Others
- Care for our School
- Care for our Learning.
One of our strengths, is the strong relationships we have developed links with, which includes staff, parents/carers, students and the wider community. Our NAPLAN results indicate that we are a high performing school, and we attribute this to dedicated teachers, well-behaved students and parents who support the school. As a school community, we believe in working together to achieve the best possible learning outcomes for our students, as well as creating a safe and caring environment for all school community members.
