Excellent education is housed in 7 elementary schools, one 5/6 grade, one 7th grade, one 8th grade, one high school, and a cyber learning option.

As noted earlier, a common element of Limerick is its connection with Spring City and Royersford – lots of shared services.
The Limerick Generating Station produces SO MUCH POWER via two General Electric boiling water reactors. Whether you are a science nerd or not, a tour of the complex is fascinating.
