Alpine

alpineAlpine is a city located in Utah County.  The population was 9,555 at the 2010 census. Alpine has been one of the many quickly-growing cities of Utah since the 1970s, and especially the 1990s. It is located on the slopes of the Wasatch Range north of Highland and American Fork. The west side of the city runs above the Wasatch Fault. The city is so named because when it was first settled, the Latter-day Saint leader Brigham Young visited and said the town reminded him of the Swiss Alps.

Despite being a fairly small town geographically, Alpine is home to four schools. Three of the schools are a part of the Alpine School District, while the fourth, Mountainville Academy, is a charter school for grades K-9. Alpine Elementary and Westfield Elementary are Alpine District Schools for grades K-6. Both of the Alpine District elementary schools feed into Timberline Middle School, a 7-9 grade school.

Alpine is known for its beautiful and hidden setting in the NorthEast Corner of Utah Valley. The homes here are typically higher in value than other areas along the Wasatch Front.
