English Language Development (ELD)

Welcome to the English Language Development (ELD) site for the Lower Merion School District. Lower Merion is proud to serve families from around the world with diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Currently, 29 languages are spoken by Lower Merion students. Whether you come to us speaking little English or more advanced skills, services are offered to English learners of all levels. All of these students and families enrich our community. We are happy that you have chosen Lower Merion Schools for your children and for allowing us to serve them.

The purpose of this website is to provide parents, students, teachers, and tutors with resources. If you have any questions about our English Language program, please talk with the ELD teacher and/or building administrator in your child’s school.
