Lower Merion School District Reviews
Of the District's nine eligible schools, all have received recognition for the excellence by the commonwealth and seven have received the National Blue Ribbon Award for Excellence in Education. Students have come from India, China, and various religious backgrounds. Lower Merion and Harriton HS are also ranked #1 and #2 in the state among non-admission- based schools on the ACT and SAT exam. Out of my ten years in the district, I have seen many clubs that students are able to participate in. From robotics to yearbook to theatre, there is a place for any and everyone. The teachers in the school district makes sure every student has a voice in class and understands the criteria being taught to them. If students need extra help, teachers are willing to give up their lunch or after school hours to help them in any way they know how. LMSD is a great place to bring a child for a proper education.
This school district has great resources and phenomenal teachers and staff. There is a lot of money due to the surrounding property taxes and many great opportunities. As an artist and a humanities person, have thrived at Harriton, and I also have seen my science and math oriented friends thrive as well. The Only thing I would change is how communicative and efficient the administration and school board is.
I participated in the International Baccalaureate program at Harriton High School for the full 2 years; and the quality of academics, teachers, opportunities, and the overall intellectual experience was of great value to my pre- undergraduate studies, and time spent in Lower Merion School District.
