Lower Merion School District Reviews

Some teachers are pretty bad. They don’t realy understand how to teach. I don’t want to name any names, but some science teachers didn’t really prepare me for anything. He basically just gave us a test 4 days after giving us a pointless powerpoint to study for. Although, some teachers are amazing, like Mr. Lawler. He was very helpful in Pre-Alg and actually taught me something!

Lower Merion School District is great! They prepared me for college completely and I had some of the most amazing teachers throughout elementary to high school. I moved to the area in 5th grade from Israel and did not speak a word of English. The ESL (English as a Second Language) program helped me so much and in 5 years I was already placed out of the program and was in all English speaking classes. I would definitely recommend Lower Merion School District to anyone looking for great education and a great experience.
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.
