What are some of opinions about Hatboro-Horsham School District? Everyone on here seems to love Abington & Upper Dublin when talking about E. Montco school districts, but H-H never seems to get any love. From what I've seen, it looks a like a great school district that's one of the best in the Bux-Mont area: great community, great teachers, very good performance. All of that should add up to being one of the better districts in the area, up there with the Upper Dublin's, Central Bucks' and Council Rock's. Am I missing something?

Thanks for your help!

it's a very good school district. won't see it "ranked" as high as upper dublin, but right up there with the other very good east Montco districts like wissahickon, north penn, abington, etc. then again, there really isn't a district in east Montco that ISN'T good. people on here tend to talk about where THEY live, so the fact that you don't see it mentioned often just tells you that nobody on this board lives there. the only thing i don't like about Horsham is the reliance on Rt 611, which is a terrible road, if you're in the eastern part of the township. if you're in the northwestern part, then Rt 309 is your main artery, which is a positive.

If you want to live in a newer-growth suburban area, i think Horsham twp has a pretty good balance of location, accessability, atmosphere, price point, and schools. Also, there are a lot of commercial properties in the southern part of the township so property taxes should be reasonable.

Thanks Angus! I guess there just aren't a lot of people from H-H on this forum. Just wanted to double check to see if I wasn't missing some secret about the district, like all the teachers are drug dealers or something like that .

My fiance and I are actually very close to purchasing a house in Horsham and from everything we've looked at, we couldn't be happier with a (potential) location for our new home (good schools, safe neighborhoods, parks/playgrounds & our commutes tend to avoid the traffic for the most part). Good mix of everything, except a quaint, walkable, historic downtown- but there's still hope for that haha.

For the record Upper Dublin (I went there) is very overrated educationally.
