Despite an overall lack of diversity in the neighborhoods and public schools, the curriculum is excellent. One of the best public school systems in the state adequately prepares students for college and the professional world. The neighborhood is very safe which usually results in cops terrorizing kids. The area lacks affordability due to redlining which hasn't helped diversity, and has been a place for mostly upper-middle-class white commuters.

Safe and quiet town where not a lot really goes on. Great place to raise a family. There isn't a lot of crime in Lower Moreland and people often feel safe here. The community itself is predominantly white, upper-middle class citizens.
Lower Moreland is a nice area just outside philadelphia. The school district is small and highly rated, the kids are prepared for college, and the school offers many activities. The township has distinct neighborhoods, each with its own strengths. The community would benefit from better connectivity between the neighborhoods and schools.
