Message from the Principal

Welcome to Lankenau High School!  We are on the brink of many new and exciting changes that will help make this high school year one of success and achievement.

Lankenau is an off-site, special-admissions program for students who thrive in a small, family-like environment.  We are a high school of approximately 350 students and staff, located in the hills of Upper Roxborough on a scenic campus, far away from the pressures of city living.  We have often been called "The Country Campus for the College Bound."  That is a fitting description of our physical setting--and we do expect every student to go to college.

All students are transported from their neighborhoods to our front door.  Our student body is serious and goal-directed, maintaining an average daily attendance of over 90%.  We are proud of our students and believe that each one can achieve at high levels.

We have high expectations for student learning and achievement within a safe and supportive environment.


Mrs. Karen Dean
