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 8.400 students from the boroughs of Hulmeville, Langhorne, Langhorne Manor, Penndel, and the townships of Lower Southampton 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.
