We are pleased that you have taken the time to visit the La Mariposa website. We provide a comprehensive education for students with disabilities from Kindergarten to 5th grade. We work closely with our local school districts to ensure students get a quality education that is individualized to their needs.

Our hope is that you find our website to be user-friendly, and after your visit, you will have a good idea of all we have to offer. Our school is a wonderful place for students from diverse backgrounds to grow physically, educationally, and socially. We believe that every child can grow and achieve their maximum level of independence.

Our programs and expertise in working with children with disabilities is second to none. We strive to create an environment where each and every student is given the support and tools necessary to achieve his/her individual success.

All of this is made possible by strong partnerships that are developed with our parents, local school districts, and community agencies.
