Recognizing the importance of great schools, homebuyers moving into the district have contributed to an average 3.2 percent growth rate in the last 10 years. In 2017, a record number of voters approved $180.8 million to fund the district’s plans for new elementary, intermediate and middle schools and to enlarge the high school campus and build a science academy and a visual and performing arts center. In school year 2018-19, MPS will offer full-day pre-kindergarten for the first time. The program will be available on a limited basis, with selections made by lottery. MPS will hold a Pre-Kindergarten Round-Up from 4:30 – 7 p.m. on March 13 at Mustang Middle School. Round-up attendance is required to participate in the full-day Pre-K drawing. Be sure to click on the Round-Up link for information about the enrollment forms you will need to complete to be eligible for full-day Pre-K. After School Programs The Bronco Club provides after-school programming at the school site. With care provided by certified teachers and administrators, Club members enjoy some free time to play and can get help with homework, explore technology, enjoy games, STEM activities and arts and crafts in a safe, caring environment. Mustang Parks & Recreation offers an After School Program at the Mustang Town Center for kindergarten to 4th grades at Mustang, Centennial and Mustang Valley elementary schools. Transportation is provided. Registration required. MPS will open two new schools in 2018-19: a new elementary school at 44th and Czech Hall and a new intermediate school for fifth and sixth grade at 15th Street and Czech Hall Road. For more information on these exciting new changes, visit the MPS website: www.mustangps.org. NOTE: This is what’s going on because of the new schools. These additions mean the boundaries of existing elementary and intermediate schools will change. The district plans a forum in late January or early February, so parents can meet the steering committee, ask questions and raise concerns. Information about the forum and boundary changes will be updated regularly on the district’s website: www.mustangps.org. Focus on Academics MPS maintains a tradition of academic achievement through a focus on individual students, not just grade-level averages. This has resulted in a high school dropout rate under one percent – not good enough, according to the staff. STEM Education -- Students can select to participate in STEM at any point during their K-12 experience. Recognized as one of the Governor’s STEM communities focusing on science, technology, engineering and math, MPS strives to infuse STEM teaching into all levels of learning, beginning at the lowest levels and continuing through innovative research in high school -- teaching science and mathematical concepts through the integration of technology and engineering design. Thanks to STEM grants and bond fund support, teachers go to STEM training, and the district purchases technology and science equipment to enhance STEM classes.
