Lower Merion School District
#4 Best School Districts in Pennsylvania
- School District
- Ardmore, PA
Senior: What I like about Lower Merion School District is that they follow a strict curriculum which each school is included in. They have certain days that students are allowed off such as holidays and breaks such as winter break. Lower Merion School District is also aware of the danger of students traveling in weather such as snow. not only do they pay attention to the students situations with coming to school, but also going home. One thing that I would like to see change about the school district is the diversity. I would like to see more African Americans in the community. I would also like the schools in this district to be able to come together and do things together. Although we are not in the same interact as certain schools, I would like to see the schools do more together.

School District of Haverford Township
#23 Best School Districts in Pennsylvania
- School District
- Havertown, PA
Senior: I was in the Haverford School district for elementary, middle, and high school. Most of my teachers were very nice and helpful. Many AP teachers are very qualified and prepare students well for the exams. There were many clubs to choose from and if you didn't find any to your liking you could easily start your own! The faculty sometimes hindered the experience for some students, but overall I enjoy my time at Haverford!

- Drexel Hill, PA
Senior: I like Upper Darby School district for it diversity. I have been and attended school in this school district since my birth. The township is multicultural hence the school district is diverse and very rich is culture. I like the fact that you feel completely at home which makes you recognize that you really do have a stake in the school district.
The teaches and all administrative staff that I have encountered and interacted with, are extremely nice and helpful. They provided useful guidance towards me making my intended career choice. The school district has great reputation in sports, helping kids to succeed in various sports activities. The Bus system is good as I never had any issues while I was a Bus student.
THIS SCHOOL DISTRICT ROCKS! It has played a significant role in the person that I am today. I will someday like to come back as an Alumni and mentor upcoming students.

Villa Maria Academy High School
- Private School
- Malvern, PA
Niche User: Attending Villa Maria was one of the best decisions I could have made, and I wish I could go back. I came into college feeling extremely prepared, and I very quickly realized just how great of a job Villa did in prepping me for college. I was able to succeed in my classes from the start, whereas many of my peers who did not have as strong of foundation struggled. Villa made me into the person I am today. The school taught me to never second guess myself. The school helps form independent and strong women by empowering them to engage in class discussions, teaching them how to succeed in college and beyond, and giving them many opportunities to lead. The sense of community and family at Villa is something I have never experienced before. Each faculty member, staff member, and student at the school cares so deeply for one another. All want to see everyone at the school succeed and work to make that happen. The school pride seen at Pep Rallies, games, plays, performances, etc. is unreal and extremely touching. The traditions at the school not only link the students and alum, but they are also extremely fun! The school races robot pigs, classes sing songs to one another, the girls dress up for Halloween, and the Pep Rallies are always an event! There are more sentimental traditions as well, such as Daisy Chain when the Juniors officially become seniors, Carol and Ring when the girls are given their class rings, and Big/Little events in which the girls are assigned a "Big Sister" upperclassmen! I am so proud to be a Villa Marian for copious reasons. If I could, I would do it all over again!
