Hello. I am looking into an LPN school in Altoona and I was wondering if anyone could give me any insight about the town. Is it safe? How are the schools? Is it a good place to raise a family? How is the medical jobs in the area? Any help would be appreciated. I am from NJ originally but living in Florida and I hate it here! I can't go back to NJ, it's too expensive.

One school would be the Greater Altoona Career and Technology center.

I wouldn't personally live in some sections of Altoona but in some sections I would if I had to.
In my opinion I think it would be better to raise kids in towns outside Altoona, which really isn't that bad. If you drive it makes a lot of sense. Towns outside of Altoona generally are safer (not saying altoonas not safe) and have smaller schools. Any questions let me know.
