The Neshaminy School District covers 27.6 square miles in historic Bucks County, PA (northeast of Philadelphia) serving approximately 70,000 residents. Neshaminy has 10 schools educating over 9000 students from the boroughs of Hulmeville, Langhorne, Langhorne Manor, Penndel, and the townships of Lower Southampton (encompassing Feasterville and Trevose) and Middletown. The first school in the area was established in Langhorne in 1836, and the District as we know it today was formed in 1950. Neshamimy is an Indian name, a reminder of the Lenape Indians who lived along the Neshaminy Creek, which runs through the center of the District. The area grew rapidly in the 1950’s as one of the nation’s first modern planned suburbs, Levittown, was constructed at the southeastern portion of the District, replacing the farmland there.
Levittown in the 1950’s Bucks County was founded in 1682 by William Penn. Bucks County is home to many historic sites, including the Mercer Museum, Washington Crossing Historic Park, Pennsbury Manor, and Pearl S. Buck House. Situated in the southeastern Pennsylvania, Bucks County is bounded by the Delaware River and Trenton, NJ to the east, and the historic city of Philadelphia to the southwest.
