Allentown is served by the Allentown School District, which has over 15,000 students. The district is undergoing a $120 million improvement for all 23 schools in the district. There are also two charter schools in Allentown that you can take advantage of after moving. If you prefer a private education for your children, there are parochial, Jewish, and Montessori schools. If you’re seeking a degree after moving, there are two four-year colleges (Cedar Crest College and Muhlenberg College), a community college, and a campus of Pennsylvania State University in nearby Center Valley.

Economy

Allentown is the home for several companies ranging from manufacturing to chemicals. The largest employer is the Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network.

Fun Fact! Allentown was originally named Northamptontown, but the citizens didn't like the long name and began calling it "Allen's Town", after William Allen, Chief Justice of Colonial Pennsylvania's Supreme Court. The name stuck, and was shortened to Allentown in 1838.
