Principal's Welcome

Jeffery Hunter, Interim Principal

Welcome to Bala Cynwyd Middle School! I encourage you to visit our website often to learn more about our school, our educational programs, and our students' varied activities. Located in the western suburbs of Philadelphia in Lower Merion Township, Pennsylvania, we have been providing a supportive, challenging, and nurturing educational environment in our building since 1938. I am honored to serve as the Interim Principal after being part of the administrative team as an Assistant Principal over the last 9 years (with a brief hiatus to run our LMSD@home program during the height of the pandemic). Our team of dedicated administrators, teachers, counselors and staff are eager to help you and our students navigate the middle school experience here at BC.

Bala Cynwyd is a unique place to learn- and we want to welcome all of you to join in the experience. During the 2022-2023 school year the school will be undergoing some changes due to district reconfiguration. Students from both Cynwyd and Merion Elementary schools will join us to make up our new learning community and become BC Knights. For the first time in our history, BC will be home to grades 5-8 so we have two grades of new students and many new staff members to welcome into our ranks. There are many established experiences and traditions here at Bala Cynwyd and we are eager to reimagine them for our new grade level configuration. We look forward to guiding students through their four years here with a variety of offerings and opportunities specifically geared toward middle level learners.

Please check back frequently for updates as we transition from a 5-8 building in the 2022-2023 school year. If you have questions please contact the Main Office at 610-645-1480. I look forward to working with the students, staff, parents and community members of Bala Cynwyd Middle School.
