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!

Bensalem school district has been wonderful for our family. There are a ton of diverse extracurricular options even at the elementary level that there is definitely something for everyone! The high school is truly revolutionary and the 1:1 student to technology program has maximized educational potential for each and every student by allowing them full access regardless of socioeconomic factors at home. We moved to Bensalem solely for the schools and it was the best decision we could have made!
The Bensalem Township School District has offered a great place for diversity and learning. It has created an open environment for asking questions and learning something new that you genuinely care about. The teachers are all invested into the students' educations, and leave a lasting impact after the student leaves. An Bensalem Owl once, is an Owl forever!
