Aplington Reviews

1 review
Aplington is a great little town to raise your children in. The school is small and the class size perfect. The town has really had a rise in young families moving in. It's a peaceful town, safe for young kids to play in the yard and at the park. I would like to see the school get more updating. The gym, office, and lunchroom all got an amazing update, but I would like to see the classrooms updated as well. Especially making sure there are air conditioning units in all rooms.
