Appleton One of the 100 Best Communities for Young People

According to a Newsweek story late last year, Appleton is one of America's 100 best communities for young people. You can also read about this at This is another huge honor for Appleton. But those of us who live hear don't need external research to tell us this. It really is an incredibly good community to raise a family and a great place for both young and old.
Just thought I would leave a note describing why we selected Appleton (and Fox Cities) as one of the 100 Best Communities for Young People.

Appleton and Fox Cities is receiving the 100 Best honor, in part, because of the community’s collaborative programs that benefit children and youth. The community uses a consistent and comprehensive approach to positive youth development.

We felt that several segments of the community work together to design, deliver and assess efforts that help youth thrive. We looked at how the 10 school districts share alternative schools facilities, specialized charter schools for science and the arts, and how one district even has an emphasis on service-learning. Youth-serving organizations operate after-school programs in many locations and community volunteers serve on behalf of organizations and programs.
Thanks for sharing these comments! It's an honor to have you drop by.
