Lower Merion School District Reviews

Overall my experience was great as a high school student attending Lower Merion High School. We had all the resources we needed at our finger tips, the curriculum was great and the teachers were great as well. I also loved how diversified it was; I met students who had various backgrounds who came from all over, from different parts of the world. I learnt a lot from my classes although my academics were a bit challenging I was resilient and finished strong. But with the academics being a challenge for students I think thats great because it will push them to want to go beyond their boundaries of learning. It's an outstanding school district as well and I am happy to say that I have really enjoyed attending this district.
Review Lower Merion School District
Lower Merion is a great school district however I feel that a lot of the tax dollars paid to be in that district go to waste. There is a falsely-advertised student-to-teacher ratio, my senior year we didn't even have enough books for my statistics or psychology class. They do offer many extra curricular activities and opportunities to get college credit through AP classes. They also have very good connections to colleges, we usually send between 10-25 students to ivy league schools every year. They hire the best teachers, most of the time they are great and are willing to work with you on anything.
This school district is amazing for preparing you for academic and career success. Amazing facilities, resources, teachers, clubs+activities are all things that make this district so great. The only negative thing about it would be the people in it. It is a highly competitive school filled with many children who seem to live in the "Main Line" Bubble. The kids seem to face very few challenges outside of academics and can be a little entitled. Other than that, the school and it's academics are stellar.
