The School District  

The Wallenpaupack Area School District is located in the Pocono Mountains of Northeastern Pennsylvania. The school district is located in a predominately rural setting, drawing its student from a 325 square mile area of Wayne and Pike counties. The Wallenpaupack Area School District was formed in July, 1961. At that time the K-12 enrollment was 1,250 students; the district has experienced periods of rapid growth over the last decade. District enrollment is currently approximately 3,500 students.

 
The Region

Formerly a region of small manufacturing, canal transport, lumbering, and farming, the present focal point of the area's economic life is Lake Wallenpaupack with its related resort and vacation enterprises. Lake Wallenpaupack, the second largest lake in Pennsylvania, was man-made by Pennsylvania Power & Light. Construction was completed in 1926. Before that, only a stream flowed through the beautiful valley. The local Leni Lenapi Indian tribe called the stream "Wallenpaupack" which means "the stream of swift and slow water."
