The district is comprised of three townships surrounding the Borough of Pottstown. They form a "horseshoe," starting with Lower Pottsgrove Township in the east and northeast, Upper Pottsgrove Township to the northwest, and West Pottsgrove Township to the west. The Schuylkill River, which flows from west to east toward the Delaware River, comprises two boundaries of the District, one to the west of Pottstown and the other to the east.
 
The Pottsgrove School District consists of five schools.  Two elementary schools grades K-2, one elementary school grades 3-5, one middle school grades 6-8, and one high school grades 9-12. 
 
The strengths of the District are strong community support for the schools, a dedicated staff, and an active student body. There is a high level of participation in a wide variety of co-curricular and extra curricular activities.
