Alden Reviews

1 review
I've lived in Alden my entire life and have my neighbors arrested on a regular basis. (Not just one set, but each neighbor around my house.) Everything in Alden is very close, and you are merely minutes away from the city of Iowa Falls which has a lot of entertainment and stores. The public schools in Iowa Falls/Alden are AWFUL. There are fights, drugs, threats, etc. We open enroll forty minutes from my home to avoid the students of Iowa Falls. However, during the day in Alden, it is very safe and you don't feel threatened or scared until it is dark outside.
