Lower Merion High School


About LMHS

We are not an ordinary high school.

We are Lower Merion, a storied academic institution and a testament to the importance of world-class public education. A fiercely proud, tight-knit educational community, we have blazed a bold path of innovation and achievement since our doors first opened more than a century ago. We're proud of our reputation for academic excellence and passionate about learning and leading.

For generations, students have taken advantage of all Lower Merion has to offer, discovered their interests and developed them into something greater. Graduates have gone on to provide leadership in nearly every field, serving in myriad capacities: four-star generals, globe-trotting diplomats, elected officials, university presidents, Fortune 500 CEOs, hip-hop legends, Olympic gold-medal winners, poet laureates, stars of screen and stage, best-selling authors, medical pioneers, visionary artists, a U.S. Secretary of State and even the current Librarian of Congress.

We are not a one-size-fits-all educational community. Large enough to offer a wealth of opportunity, small enough to ensure personalized attention - we have something for everyone. Our teachers are smart, talented and dedicated to their craft and the students they serve. They deliver a dynamic, challenging curriculum. Our extracurricular offerings are unparalleled.

No matter what your passion may be, you can explore it here.

We are scholars and athletes. Historians and scientists. Artists and engineers. Thinkers, dreamers and do-ers. We are Lower Merion.
