Principal's Welcome

Dr. Jim ScanlonNov. 30, 2021

Dear Lower Merion High School Families,

It is my honor to serve as interim principal of Lower Merion High School while the District conducts a search for a new principal. While I never had the privilege of working with Sean Hughes, I know he served our students, staff, and families with great care, dedication, and passion. His legacy is a testament to the quality of this school.

It is my goal to provide support and stability to help our students to have the best educational experience possible for the duration of this school year. There is joy in learning, and there is no greater source of joy than our children. The faculty and staff of Lower Merion High School are dedicated to academic excellence, building supportive relationships, and encouraging our students to flourish and achieve their personal best. We are here to help them to continue to grow and thrive, even in the face of hardship.

It may be hard to get to know a new face under a mask, but I hope you will reach out to say hello. I look forward to working with this exemplary staff and student body, and doing all I can to best serve this school community.

In Partnership,

Jim Scanlon
Interim Principal
Lower Merion High School
