The North Penn School District is
located in Southeastern Pennsylvania, approximately 20 miles north of Philadelphia
in Montgomery County. The district encompasses 42 square miles and has a total
population of more than 98,000 residents. These residents reside in Hatfield,
Lansdale and North Wales boroughs, Hatfield, Montgomery, Towamencin and Upper
Gwynedd townships and the village of Line Lexington. Currently the district
consists of 13 elementary schools, three middle schools, one high school and
one alternative education school. NPSD employs approximately 2,000 staff
members. Approximately 13,000 students attended
North Penn schools during the 2015-2016 school year.
vision of NPSD is to be a school system that is student-centered with a focus
on academic challenge, meaningful experiences and personal responsibility.
North Penn has a reputation in this region, state and nationwide as fulfilling
this promise to its students and helping them develop into future leaders. NPSD’s student achievement, as measured by the
PSSA, continues to improve as we work toward closing the achievement gap for
these students. In addition, our ongoing Response to Instruction and Intervention
(RtII) efforts took us on a path toward even higher achievement in the coming
years. In the spring of 2016, North Penn High School was once again named one
of the top schools in the country by Newsweek. In 2017, North Penn
School District was ranked as the 14th best school district in
Pennsylvania by Niche K-12.
