LOWER MERION, PA -- The Lower Merion School District released a letter to parents/guardians of students announcing its new changes to its secondary mathematics program.

The letter announced that “Some highlights include additional course offerings and acceleration points at the middle level and a shift to integrated mathematics rather than the traditional Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2 courses across the four secondary buildings,” and that “These changes have been part of a strategic plan exploration and are in line with our transformative goals.”
