Merion Elementary School


Principal's Welcome

Dr. Toby Albanese

I am very proud to be the new Principal of Merion Elementary School. Merion is a school with a lot of character and history, comfortably nestled in a picturesque community. In a relatively short period of time I have learned that this school and community are special in many ways.  

Merion’s students are afforded an outstanding academic and co-curricular program thanks in large part to a strong staff and an incredibly supportive HSA (Home & School Association). Prior to my arrival, Merion has had just two principals over the past half-century which is a testament to the students, staff, and community all coming together in positive ways.

We’re guided by an innovative central leadership team unafraid to do what matters most. We will work hard to continue pushing Merion forward, paying particular attention to the individual strengths and needs of each and every student.  

As an “outsider” most recently, I can tell you that Merion’s reputation is strong, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to become the leader of this team. Please explore our website to learn more about us, and do not hesitate to call with any questions, (610) 645-1470.
