When Philadelphia Magazine this month ranked the top 100 public schools in the Philadelphia area, both Lower Merion High School and Harriton High School made the top 5.
Using graduation rate, test scores, student/faculty ratio, spending per student and other factors, the magazine ranked Lower Merion No. 2 and Harriton No. 5. Rounding out the top 5 were Masterman in Philadelphia (No. 1), Unionville (No. 3) and Conestoga (No. 4).
So we ask students, parents, teachers and taxpayers:
- Are you impressed by where Lower Merion's schools ranks? Are you surprised?
- Do you think of Lower Merion as better than Harriton or vice versa?
- Taxpayers: do you feel you get your money's worth from the school district's performance?
