Ardmore District and Curriculum
Lower Merion School District and the School District of Haverford Township follow requirements laid out by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. These schools offer quality educational programs including core academic courses in English, math, and science, as well as many others in subjects such as technology education, arts, music, and world language. Students also have community service and outreach responsibilities to fulfill as members of the school community.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ardmore District Curriculum
Both of these districts offer programs for gifted and special needs students. These programs offer courses and classroom environments appropriate to the students’ needs. Individual education plans are written up to specifically address these needs with action plans to see them through. Students who are learning English as their non-native language are also provided with resources to help them integrate into school.
Students at Lower Merion School District and School District of Haverford Township take exams, both PSSA (Pennsylvania System of School Assessment) exams for specified grades below the high school level, and Keystone exams at the high school level. These exams provide opportunities for students to show proficiency in math, reading, writing and, for high school students, science as well. The tests are aligned to the goals in the curriculum to ensure student proficiency. The assessments also help teachers plan instruction by showing specific areas of strength and weakness for individual students and entire classes.

Chalk Talk: Keeping Your Child Safe After School
Many students go home to an empty house after school. But how do you know if your child is ready for this weighty responsibility and what are the alternatives if they are not? Students who go home alone should be at least 12 years of age in most circumstances. Some 12 year olds are still not ready for this responsibility, however. Children who will be spending time at home alone should be trustworthy to follow house rules no matter if they are being supervised or not. They should understand how important it is to keep their whereabouts and the fact that they stay home alone quiet and the importance of not answering the door when people knock. They should also understand basic safety such as how to call 9-1-1, their phone number and address, and how to react if anything should happen out of the ordinary. Children who are 12 and able to stay home alone may not be able to take care of younger children, so gauge their readiness for this as well.
