I absolutely LOVE what Bensalem School District has to offer my children. I have one child who graduated and currently have children in the Elementary, Middle and Senior High levels. Bensalem offers a high level of academics as well as a variety of extracurricular activities to meet all needs. I LOVE that our District has such a diverse community to help show that together we can all succeed! The love and compassion that the teachers and staff have for the children is ABOVE and BEYOND! I know that my children are going to learn in a safe and caring environment every day!

I am a firm believer of our Bensalem Township School District. I have a long history here; I am a graduate, my three children are graduates, and two out of three of my grandchildren are currently attending Bensalem schools. (one lives in Florida)
We have a diverse population, so children learn acceptance on all levels. We have many after school programs, from sports to clubs. We have a stem program that competes and wins on high levels. We have NOT cut our music and arts programs. Come check us out!
The Gifted and Music programs are incredible! They both allow people with special interests, like myself, to be educated at the level they need. The music programs as a whole turn anyone into an outstanding performer!
