Innovative Program

In Lower Merion High School’s Minority Achievement Program (M.A.P.), the highest achieving African American and Hispanic students are supported to take primarily honors and AP courses and be successful. The tactics have resulted in the doubling, in just one year, of the number of honors /AP classes being taken by minority students. Additionally, 84 percent of the 9th graders earned a GPA of 3.0 or above in those classes.
