Lower Moreland High School3

The high school is in denial about the drug problem that is going on in their school. The bullying is an issue with the parents and the students. The drama club has had their favorites since middle school. The school could improve with peer education and programs with bullying.
LMHS offers some great academic programs. The English teachers are excellent, and the students graduate with a strong knowledge of and interest in literature. It also has a great music program with an AP course in Music Theory. A student who is a musician has many opportunities for study and performance. Overall, a good, solid academic preparation for college and the world beyond.
ok school, lots of drud dealing going on. weed, adderal other adhd meds are sold by kids who actually suppose to take them. Lots of disfunctional kids who cant deal with programm. Help only available for those who fail classe. They deffinetelly need good tutoring program.
Top notch music program. The music teachers are wonderful. Great academic program.However, It should be a good transition from middle school to High school. I am not really sure if students are prepare for the transition. I know that 9th grade is hard and some students are not really prepared for that. I wish the administration should be aware and focus on this issue. I don't like the stress that a 9th grader encounters when they go to high school.
Very bad counsling and very bad admininistrative handling of information flow to parents. School utilizes the legal system when they need it. My son needed assistance for a learning disability and they pushed him thru four years without teaching any corrective measures. They covered themselves buy holding regular meetings and documenting there efforts. They gave him high grades and pushed him along and then dumped him upon graduation. Without any guidence for the future. He attended a college above his abilities, and needless to say he dropped out due to being overwhelmed. He no longer had the Lower morland push him along at his side. We hold the school responsable for this.
I have heard that there is a lot of theft at this school as well. My children have had personal items (both expensive and trivial items) stolen as well. Very small school for those who prefer a smaller environment. Not too many apply to (get in or attend) top universities or colleges. At most 3 -5 out of a class of 150 or so attend Ivy League or other 1st tier universities or colleges.
