The Brandywine Heights Area School District is located in the northeastern quadrant of Berks County, about ten miles from the City of Reading. The district borders Lehigh County and is within commuting distance of the Allentown/Bethlehem metropolitan area. The district encompasses approximately 52.2 square miles and is comprised of four municipalities: the Borough of Topton and the townships of District, Longswamp, and Rockland.
Topton is perhaps best known for being the home of the Topton Lutheran Home, an assisted living and skilled nursing community for the elderly. The largest commercial industry in the Topton area is East Penn Manufacturing, associated with the manufacture and shipping of Deka automotive and marine batteries.
The close proximity of two larger cities, Allentown and Bethlehem, provides opportunities for employment in any number of occupations that would not normally be available in a small community. Highways leading from the larger local metropolitan areas, passing in the near vicinity of the Borough of Topton, provide a ready access for both businesses and residents of the area.
