Dear Parents, Guardians, and Community Members:
The School District of Lower Moreland is passionate about our charge to educate the children. We have carefully identified a dynamic instructional staff capable of implementing a rigorous curriculum, while addressing the individual needs and talents of all students. We maintain high academic standards and our students consistently score advanced or proficient in state mandated test. Our mission is to foster a program that prepares the child for life-long learning.
As an addendum to our exceptional education program, students have unique opportunities to learn and grow in the areas of art, science, music, language and a full complement of sports activities. The importance of community engagement is emphasized and evident in the numerous volunteer programs sponsored throughout the school year.
Our efforts have not gone unnoticed. We are one of the top 1000 school districts in the nation as reported by Newsweek magazine for the past seven consecutive years. We ranked in the Top 10 for academic achievement and 17 among the top 100 school districts in the state. The district was awarded 2nd place in the small district category for being a technologically advanced school district by the Center of Digital Education.
A consummate advocate for children, the Board of School Directors works to ensure the district is planning and preparing for the future and has published its annual report and strategic plan for public review. In these uncertain economic times, many school districts have had to review their current budgets and priorities and we are no different. We have been forced to change the way we do business preferring not to be an undue burden on taxpayers. We are seeking alternative resources to address pressing needs throughout the district. The Foundation for Lower Moreland Schools was formed to raise immediate funds for the gym floor and track at the Murray Avenue School with a mission to encourage and support innovative programs.
I hope you will agree that Lower Moreland is a district of excellence and I am honored to be the superintendent. Vital to our success, is your continued support. Our common denominator is a quality education for the children.
Dr. Marykay Feeley
Superintendent of Schools
