St. Margaret Elementary School

Welcome to SMS


    Our Mission Statement:

    St. Margaret School, a Catholic elementary school in Narberth, Pennsylvania, is a vital component of the Catholic Community of St. Margaret Church. St. Margaret School strives to develop the whole child spiritually, academically, emotionally, and physically by encouraging a partnership with parents, the primary educators of their children.

    The school exists to nurture children and continue the instruction of our Catholic faith, while providing them with the differentiated intellectual instruction required to attain lifelong goals regardless of their race, religion, or ethnic background. The faculty and staff guide children to become Christian leaders who will strengthen the Body of Christ by making a positive impact in an ever-changing world.

    Our School Community:

     Established as a small parish school in the early 1900s, SMS today serves as the only Archdiocesan Catholic elementary school in Lower Merion Township, PA. We welcome the families of St. Margaret, St. Matthias, Presentation BVM, Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Mother of Good Counsel, St. John Vianney and St. Thomas of Villanova parishes.

    Prospective students and families are invited to tour the school, visit classrooms, and meet faculty,  staff and students. Please email or contact the school office to set up a tour (610.664.2640).
