Upper Moreland School District is located in Upper Moreland Township, Montgomery County in the northern suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Township has a general population of 25,000 residents who are served by the post offices of Willow Grove, Hatboro, and Huntingdon Valley, although due to postal and municipal boundaries, many students served by the Hatboro post office attend Hatboro-Horsham School District, while others served by the Huntingdon Valley post office attend Lower Moreland schools. A K-12 public school system, Upper Moreland School District has four schools to educate its 3200 students.[citation needed]
