Mariposa Elementary School

Mariposa Elementary School (MES) is located in Mariposa, California.

A rural community in the Sierra Nevadas. As a TK-8 school, MES offers a wide range of programs to promote academic, social, physical, and emotional excellence in our students. We offer after school enrichment programs such as art and music, sponsored by our PCA. Our students enjoy extracurricular activities such as the the ASES program, Girl Scouts, and Project Smile, sports, Club Live, and more. 

The Mariposa community is very supportive of MES.

The staff at MES is student-centered and passionate about providing students a high quality TK-8 experience. Our school's success is a testament to the staff's hard work and professionalism and the community's strong support of MES.
