Upper Merion Area School District Reviews

I loved it here at Upper Merion, I hate the idea of leaving. Although this is a rather small public high school, the experience is just as good, if not better than the other public schools in this region. Every student feels welcomed, and involved in the schools nationalism. Seeing the bleachers filled with students cheering on their counterparts at any sporting events, or teachers staying after school to tutor, guide and encouraging supervised study, shows the school's quintessential character. Upper Merion Area High School reaps tons of benefits from the surrounding - commercialized surroundings- . Upper Merion, located in a 5 mile radius to the mall and other complexes, proudly partners with enumeral restaurants in its local community to benefit the intent at hand - raising money for a local family in need, Mini Thon's FTK- yields this strong sense of community. This strong sense of home.

Awesome experience! Great teachers and alum. Proud parents. Special education teachers also care! School is on the rise! Wouldn’t send my children anywhere else
Overall, my experience in Upper Merion Area School District was ok. I had some very outstanding teachers who were very influential to me and still stay in touch with some of them. Academically it prepared me for college in the best way possible. The only drawback was the social environment. I never had many friends while going to school here. Everyone had their own cliques and I was never in any cliques.
