Perkiomen Valley School District, PA

The Perkiomen Valley School District (PVSD) is a school district based in central Montgomery County, Pennsylvania (US). It serves the boroughs of Collegeville, Trappe, and Schwenksville, and the townships of Lower Frederick, Perkiomen, and Skippack, in Pennsylvania. The district headquarters are in Perkiomen Township.

The Perkiomen Valley School District was formed in 1969 through the merger of the Perkiomen Joint School District and the Schwenksville Union School District. Perkiomen Joint School District was, itself, a consolidation of Collegeville, Trappe, and Skippack Township (served by the former Collegeville-Trappe High School), while Schwenksville Union School District had unified Schwenksville, Lower Frederick Township, and Perkiomen Township (served by the former Schwenksville High School).

Perkiomen Valley High School, then housed in what had been the Collegeville-Trappe High School building, and the former Perkiomen Valley Junior High School, housed at the old Schwenksville High School, opened that fall. The current high school building, at 509 Gravel Pike (Pennsylvania Route 29), Graterford, Perkiomen Township (Collegeville postal address), opened in the fall of 1976.

The original superintendent was the late Dr. U. Berkley Ellis, Jr.

U.S. News & World Report, in its 2018 list of best high schools in the United States, ranked Perkiomen Valley High School the ninth best high school in Pennsylvania.
