WELCOME TO UPPER MACUNGIE TOWNSHIP

Our township is one of the fastest growing in Pennsylvania for many good reasons; strategic location, great schools, exciting recreational locations and parks, as well as a responsive and caring township government intent on making Upper Macungie Township progressively better.


Public education for Upper Macungie Township students from Kindergarten through Senior High School is provided by the Parkland School District.
Academically, the Parkland School District ranked in the top 6% of school districts in Pennsylvania, based on 3 years of Pennsylvania System of Assessment (PSSA) scores.

Upper Macungie is an area with a big shopping center of box stores, warehouses and townhouses. Not most people's idea of a "town" to begin with. Now Macungie is a nice town with a main street and old houses surrounded by newer developments and it blends into Upper Macungie township. Big difference between the two areas.

Went to see a perfect open house there. No hoa at $400k range. 15 years old. Perfect school. Low tax. Perfect layout and Feng Shui. Sellers and people to the open house are all Asian.

It's a nice town but I feel like Lehigh valley has a bunch of beautiful towns just as nice if not nicer in my opinion.I think what sets it ahead is the school district ratings and higher income bracket.

Upper Macungie township is pretty big. It’s generalizing to say it’s mostly warehouses and townhouses. I live in Upper Mac in a stand-alone house nowhere near big box stores. The trucks are terrible but if you don’t live near 100 and 222 you can avoid seeing trucks. Now if you take 22 or 78 to cross the valley then you’ll see lots of trucks too. I’d say the Lehigh Valley in general has a huge truck problem. It’s not concentrated to just Upper Mac.

Good points and your right, it's a pretty large township. It's great that we all like and have different preferences and priorities. When we lived in Delaware County, down near the Delaware State border, we had all the shopping that anyone could want, lived in a very nice development, highways within 10 minutes to get us places and the Garnet Valley School District, which is very well ranked. The downside was that there was no town there, it was stores, houses and highways.

When we were looking for a new home up here, we made having a town very close a high priority and shopping a low one. Our number one priority was a well regarded small school district. The Promenade shops were created after we moved in. I like being close to both the country and the cities of Bethlehem and Allentown for entertainment. That's why Southern Lehigh School district worked for us.

It sounds like Upper Macungie should suit you very well bluewin888.

I was looking for my usual school comparison site, and found that they changed the website for the one from the state,https://futurereadypa.org/Compare/# but then found this one: https://www.schooldigger.com/go/PA/search.aspx I didn't look into all of their methodology but they have Southern Lehigh ranked 26th in the state, East Penn as 111 and Parkland as 113. I think that's not quite right, but it kind of points out that the talk of East Penn and Parkland as being the very best School Districts in the Lehigh Valley is not a universal truth.
