The communities of Parkersburg and Aplington together form the Aplington-Parkersburg Community School District, which supports Parkersburg Elementary (PreK-2), Aplington Elementary (3-5), Aplington Parkersburg Middle School (6-8), and Aplington Parkersburg High School (9-12). We have fostered a tradition of academic, fine arts, and athletic excellence over the years. We have partnered with 3 other regional school districts to provide credit for college-level coursework at no cost for our students as well as a shared director to organize career exploration through job shadowing and internship opportunities.

This organization is affiliated with Scholarship America, which is nationally recognized and gives our students all the more chance for exploring for scholarships. Parkersburg chartered in 1983 and was joined with Aplington in 1993. In 1983 we gave $1,500 in scholarships and in 2018 awards ceremony we gave a total of $99,890 of which $54,940 was to postgraduates of AP. Donations can be made right on the website, under the donations tab. Our biggest fundraiser is the Mail -A -Thon we do every year at which we have great support from the community and is greatly appreciated. We are "hands-up", not a "hand-out" organization.
