Upper Moreland High School is a comprehensive public high school, serving grades 9–12, located in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, about fifteen miles outside of Philadelphia. It is the only high school in the Upper Moreland School District, which includes part of Huntingdon Valley, Hatboro, and Willow Grove. Its primary feeder school is Upper Moreland Middle School, and routinely sends graduates to the highest caliber colleges and universities in the United States.


Upper Moreland High School, abbreviated UMHS, serves grades 9–12. Its current building, which was erected in 1958, sits at 3000 Terwood Road in Willow Grove, directly adjacent to the Warminster Line of SEPTA Regional Rail (but is not served by a station), and its campus includes the school district's administration building and bus garage. Construction is nearly complete for a three-level science wing, and air conditioning has been installed, as the school sits diagonally across the street from the Upper Moreland-Hatboro Joint Sewer Authority treatment plant on Terwood Road. It also sits directly across Terwood Rd. from Eastern Center for Arts and Technology, formerly known as Eastern Montco Vo-Tech School.
