    Welcome to the Pottsgrove School District

    The mission of the Pottsgrove School District is to educate and inspire all students to excel as productive, responsible citizens, and lifelong learners.

    Welcome to the Pottsgrove School District. We are a suburban public school district that is located in western Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The district is comprised of three townships surrounding the Borough of Pottstown. They form a "horseshoe", starting with Lower Pottsgrove in the east and northeast, Upper Pottsgrove Townships to the northwest, and West Pottsgrove Township to the west. 

    The school district has a population of 20,627 residents. The Schuylkill River, which flows from west to east toward the Delaware River, comprises two boundaries of the District, one to the west of Pottstown and the other to the east. The Pottsgrove School District consists of five schools. Two elementary schools are grades K-2, one elementary school for grades 3-5, one middle school for grades 6-8, and one high school for grades 9-12.

    The District serves over 3,000 students from the three townships. Since the jointure in 1956 that formed the Pottsgrove School District, we have been committed to providing an excellent atmosphere for learning and service to the community. The experiences we provide our students inspire them to be successful in a variety of endeavors, from academic success to proficiency in the arts and achievements in athletics.

    The strengths of the District are strong community support for the schools, a dedicated staff, and an active student body.
