Royersford has made it onto the Realtor.com nationwide list of the Top 10 Affordable Towns with the Best Elementary Schools.
The Montgomery county town’s ZIP code of 19468 ranked fourth on the list that analyzes the top metropolitan areas across the country that have at least one public school with a rating of 8 or higher on GreatSchools.
Royersford’s Brooke Elementary School, Limerick Elementary School, Spring-Ford Intrmd School 5th/6th, and Upper Providence Elementary School were all rated with 9/10, while Evans Elementary School received an 8/10 rating.
The town has achieved its high ranking in part thanks to its affordability. According to the survey Royersford’s median household income is $83,264 while the median property listing price is $246,125. This makes the town 21 percent more affordable than the surrounding metro area and 32 percent more affordable than the national average.
Part of this could be attributed to the fact that four of the town’s schools are in the Spring-Ford Area School District that puts an emphasis on making school fun.
The district applies the philosophy that students of elementary schools “should enjoy coming to school” and that making sure they are welcomed by an enjoyable environment will ensure they reach their full potential.
