Lower Merion School District Reviews
You can't beat the quality of the educational experience you get at Lower Merion. They somehow have managed to find the right balance of academic core curriculum, specialty courses, and tons extra curriculars. Despite the large size of the district, the teachers, school staff, and administrators are somehow able to connect with and help the students on an individual level. The team at Lower Merion helped both my daughters get into their top choices for college. An incredible district!
A wonderful school district. Highly recommended! Many advanced placement (AP) courses offered, great for college prep. I know several MDs, PhDs, and lawyers that have come out of Lower Merion SD. Also, lots of options for athletics, clubs, and activities. LMSD easily stands up to the top private schools in the area without the added tuition cost.
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.
