Lower Merion School District Reviews

Both daughters surpassed emotional, physical and spiritual succor of this papa. He struggled like the dickens amidst plethora of hard times. This dada feels especially grateful for expansive network bolstered learning curve of Punim. Though afflicted with developmental delay staff members patiently instructing this lovely lass, whose every inch of learning impede by severely struggle. Abstract material re: cognitive concepts wrought particular challenge. This sunny shana Aubrey shines with an aura, charisma, and dogma (helped her cats up to peers). Success a near sure thing with whatever enterprise she undertakes. This father, son and Casper the friendly Holy Ghost (only for Halloween) offers top marks. Extra credit paid per assiduous dedication, gracious judicious manumission plaguing reading, and understanding relevant classroom materiel. Many sincere thank use barely communicate the appreciation, dedication, and glorification of milestones overcome with age appropriate kudos.
Review Lower Merion School District
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.
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.
