APS Celebrates Mrachek Grand Opening!

Hundreds of APS staff, students and community members recently gathered to witness the grand opening of the new Mrachek Middle School.

The new school features a 130,000-square foot building with separate learning communities for each grade level and serves up to 1,000 students.

“As soon as I took the role of being a Mrachek Titan and walking into our new Titan territory, I knew this came along with new opportunities and new adventures,” said Isabella, Mrachek M.S. 7th grade student. “We can now achieve more for our futures because of our new atmosphere that fosters a better tomorrow.”

Mrachek was originally built in 1975 as an open classroom concept design without windows and interior walls to separate rooms. This design had been a challenge for the school community.

In addition to bond funds, APS received a $16 million grant toward the school’s construction from the Colorado Department of Education’s Building Excellent Schools Today Program. Mrachek’s new building aligns with our APS core belief that all students have equitable access to learning environments that support them in reaching their full potential.

We look forward to this exciting new chapter, as we continue to accelerate learning for every APS student, every day.
