I am an alumni of Alpine Valley School and I really enjoyed my time as a student. I took a lot of different classes during my time there including some fun ones such as acting, American sign language, Greek mythology, gymnastics, and self defense, as well as more traditional ones like algebra. But I actually did most of my learning outside class. Alpine Valley has a bunch of committees and corporations that the students participate in, which are the equivalent of clubs at other schools, except more in depth. There are committees and corporations for art, traveling, cooking, keeping the school looking nice, and dealing with rule violations, to name a few. Through being a part of different committees and corporations I learned about fundraising, cooking, geography, public speaking, accounting, organizational skills, how to run and participate in meetings, and how to work as part of a team. All the skills I learned through my involvement with the school committees and corporations have translated into my adult life and I am very grateful that I had a chance to practice them at Alpine Valley.
