Alpine School District is the primary school district in northern Utah County in Utah, United States including the cities of Alpine, American Fork, Cedar Fort, Cedar Hills, Eagle Mountain, Fairfield, Highland, Lehi, Lindon, Orem, Pleasant Grove, and Saratoga Springs (as well as the portion of Draper that is located within Utah County). It includes all grades from kindergarten all through high school (K-12). As of 2017, there were 57 elementary schools, 12 junior high schools, 9 high schools, and 8 special purpose schools[1] serving approximately 78,659 students[2], making it the largest school district in Utah.

The district is governed by a board of education which consists of a seven-member group of citizens elected to four year terms to serve the patrons and students of this district.[3] The day-to-day operations of the district are managed by a superintendent. The current[when?] superintendent is Samuel Y. Jarman.

The district currently has nine large high schools, and only seven school board members, leading some parents and students to express concerns over inadequate representation on the school board.[citation needed] A tenth large high school will open in 2019. Some parents would like to see the district split into two or three new school districts, allowing more direct control over their local schools. Right now, a member of the Alpine School Board represents more people than a member of the state legislature in the house, effectively inverting the notion of local government being closer to the people than state government.

The district offices are located in American Fork at 575 North 100 East American Fork, Utah 84003.
