Alpine

AlpineIn the early 17th century, the Alpine area was known primarily for a dock built by a Dutch settler named Frederich Kloester in 1685. It enabled local farmers to ship their produce to New York City. The dock vanished long ago, but one of Alpine’s main arteries is called Closter Dock Road. Alpine is a small rural community offering prestige and privacy, an easy commute to the Financial Capital of the world and three major airports, an excellent school system, extremely low taxes and an extraordinary sense of community pride. People are attracted to Alpine because of its rural setting. The average home sale price is ranked amongst the highest in the nation. Last July, Worth Magazine ranked Alpine as the 17th wealthiest community in the United States.

Alpine Public School serves 154 students in grades K-8th.  For 9th-12th  grades, students attend Tenafly High School as a part of a sending/receiving relationship.
