I will be starting my eighth year going to school in Alpena this fall. I've been to many schools across the country, and this is the best one I've been to! The teachers all try to work with each student personally, and they really care. I'm proud to say that I will be graduating from this school!

I think this school is the best. I've been going here since I was three years old. All the teachers are great, the help you when you need help. And they usually have a smile on their faces. All the teachers have been great and I hope that it will always be that way.

I now Currently Live in Seattle,Washington the Schools here are not Nearly as Good, The Teachers at Alpena Genuinly Care about the Students. The 2 Things that Set Alpena Apart from most Other Schools is they (last time I was there had 7 People go to the Internatial Science Fair within 10 years and the teachers, to just name a few, Mr.Good, Mr.Welch, Ms.Hunt.

This school is the best school I have ever been to in my life! The teachers are always there when you need them and really try to connect to the kids, but they discipline when needed. Everyone treats each other like equals, I mean yeah there are little fights between friends but they happen everywhere, but the teachers know how to take care of it. When a child has problems with homework or doesn't understand the teachers are more than happy to help until they do understand.Our school even offers toutering in some subjects. It might be a small school but dont underestimate us because this school is better than three big schools put together!

I have been going to Alpena School for 14 years now and I have never had a problem with the school, the teachers, or anyone else. Yeah the teachers have their bad days but who doesn't come on. Anyways Alpena teachers care about their students more then they care about anyone. I'm a senior this year and anytime I need someone to talk to they are always there. The teachers kinda feel like my family. And when you have been here ever since head start you begin to know everything about everyone and there family and so on. Whenever people start finding out things you better hope that it is good. This school is a very equal school and we treat everyone the same. Whenever you get to your senior year where I am you don't want to leave this place.

Hello, I have gone to Alpena my whole live and finally I am a SR. It is a wonderful school to go to mostly because of the teachers. Some times they do seem like all they want to do is homework but all they truly want is for you to be prepared for real live and hopefully college. I would also like to say that all of Alpena s clubs are very well organized thanks to the advisors. Now there is just a one things that contradict this being a great school it is not major but to a lot of people it might be. The first would be the schools lunch most people complain about it that go to are school but this is one drawback of going to a small school it does not have enough money to supply itself with a lot of choices for lunch.

I graduated from Alpena Schools and my son begins Kindergarten at Alpena this fall. It is a small school and is growing to become one of the most effective schools in Northwest Arkansas. I have been very impressed with the staff and with the fruits of their labor. They have pushed to give their students the best in academic, athletic, artistic and technological development. I believe Alpena Public School System to be the best in our area; if I did not, I would not be sending my son. Well done Alpena, keep up the good work.

The quality is questionable. I rented a house to a daughter of one of the teachers. He has turned out to be very lacking in character. Lied to me about the location of his daughter After 3 calls he called boone co. and i was informed to not even approach the school. I am drafting a letter to inform them of his conduct

I have been going to Alpena since I was in 6th grade (now in 9th) I will admit that this is not the best school in boone county....some of the teachers are just thier to get paid and not to teach the students what they need to know....and I think that every teacher in high school should have the attitude that Mr.Kaeser has...he is the best teacher I have ever had teach me in my whole life......in conclusin Alpena is OK.

I graduated Alpena in 1998 and thanks to superb teaching, I was able to graduate college with a 3.9 GPA. Though it's small school, Alpena definitely prepared me for college.
