Employer Description
The School District of Hatboro-Horsham Welcomes you! As one of the finest school districts in Pennsylvania, where we view everyone as a "Champion of Learning". Our suburban Philadelphia school district of approximately 5,000 students is a forward-thinking progressive educational organization with a rich history of academic excellence that we will strive to exceed as we move into the future.

Vision Statement
Hatboro-Horsham School District is comprised of a cohesive, supportive group of dedicated staff, students, parents, and community members united in our commitment to pursue excellence in education.  We intend to realize our highest potential as an educational community by setting clear, measurable goals, employing best practices, engaging in effective communication, and utilizing resources wisely.  We will use our successes as a catalyst for future growth, change, and improvement. 

Educational Community 
The School District of Hatboro-Horsham is a suburban school district in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania located approximately twenty miles northeast of Philadelphia. The district encompasses a land area of approximately 20 square miles. While there is a diverse spread of socioeconomic levels, the majority of the residents comprise what is best described as a middle-class community. The school district is made up of the borough of Hatboro and the township of Horsham. 

Instructional programming is delivered in seven buildings in our community which consists of five elementary schools (K-5), one middle school (6-8), and one high school (9-12). The School District of Hatboro-Horsham is a member of the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit and receives a variety of special services through the Intermediate Unit including programming for select students with special needs. The pupil enrollment is approximately 4,780 students. The minority population is approximately 22% of the overall student population. Student enrollment grew dramatically in Hatboro-Horsham from 1985 through 2000. Student enrollment grew over 60% in that fifteen year time span. Growth tapered off beginning in 2000 and by 2004, enrollment began to slowly decline. While the borough of Hatboro offered little space for new housing, Horsham moved from a suburban-rural setting to a completely suburban community. 

The School District of Hatboro-Horsham employs approximately 880 staff members.  There are 34 administrators, 400 professional staff members, and 469 full and part-time support staff members. Among the administrative staff, there is one superintendent, one assistant superintendent, one business manager, nine directors, seven principals, and seven assistant principals. The professional staff includes classroom teachers, guidance counselors, psychologists, librarians, nurses, and an array of educational specialists.  The district budget for 2017-2018 is $103,519,211. Approximately 75% of the revenue to support the budget is generated from local tax dollars. 

The School District of Hatboro-Horsham’s motto, “Champions of Learning”, captures the essence and heart of a forward thinking, progressive educational organization. The school board, parents, and community members provide strong support for public education. The educational community embraces the proud traditions of past successes and accomplishments, but is also open to new ideas and directions. Since the district’s establishment, every building has received state recognition as a Blue Ribbon school.  Additionally, three elementary schools, as well as the Middle School and High School, received National Blue Ribbon recognition. Three of our elementary schools have been recognized on several occasions as Pennsylvania Distinguished Title I Schools. 

Hatboro-Horsham School District's educational programs are rich and diverse. There is a strong core program at every level that leads to meeting the annual indicators on virtually all benchmarked areas of the Pennsylvania School Performance Profiles. Further, there is a tremendous variety of exploratory programs, elective courses, and extra-curricular programs. Independent of this current comprehensive planning effort, there are continuous improvement processes in place at every level. As a result, there is a strong commitment to new initiatives in each school to support the academic, social, and emotional needs of every child.
