School District Catchments and Related schools can be found HERE.

The first column of this table provides the name of the elementary school catchment. Reading left to right for schools will provide a visual of lower grade schools feeding into higher grade schools. Students living in the e.g. “Adaire Catchment Area” are feeding into “Penn Treaty HS” for grades 9 through 12.

Click below for files that include the catchment areas for Elementary, Middle, and High Schools. The shapefiles require a Geographic Information System (GIS) software to properly display the school catchment areas.

Notes:

  1. This data does not include Charter Schools.
  2. Kensington High School, Kensington CAPA, and Kensington Health Sciences share a catchment area as of 2016-2017, when Kensington HS opened.  For this reason, all students living in this area are assigned to the Kensington HS catchment and catchment metrics do not include students attending either CAPA or Health Sciences.
    Please note, for the 2013-2014, 2014-2015, and 2015-2016 catchment files on Open Data, Kensington Business (now closed), Kensington Urban (now closed), Kensington CAPA, and Kensington Health shared a catchment area; all students living in the area were assigned to Kensington Business catchment.
