Conestoga High SchoolFamilies in the heart of Wayne send their children to schools in one of the nation's top districts. Families in its northwest corner send their children to schools in the nation's top district, period - Tredyffrin/Easttown, home of Conestoga High School.

Wayne being the heart of Radnor Township, most Wayne residents with children send them to schools in Radnor's highly ranked school district.

All of Wayne's Radnor Township portion lies in the attendance zone of Wayne Elementary School. The buzz on this school is that the school community is dedicated to not only strong academics but also positive behavior, urging students to "be...respectful, responsible, safe and caring."

From Wayne Elementary, Radnor students proceed to Radnor Middle School, a

Radnor High SchoolThree of Pennsylvania's 10 best school districts lie along the Main Line. Radnor Township's is one of those three. Radnor High School, seen here, is also one of the state's 10 best high schools.

Since this post is about Radnor, and since it's about schools, of course it will be about the dnor public schools first and foremost.

If you have children, and you're considering Radnor as a place to live, it probably has a lot to do with the Radnor Township School District, one of three top-flight school districts serving the Main Line. Niche.com named the Radnor district the third best in Pennsylvania and 20th nationwide in its 2016 rankings of best school districts. Parents and students give it high marks for the quality and breadth of its advanced

Radnor High SchoolRadnor High School is the first and oldest school in the Radnor Township School District, but if the original 1893 building still exists, it's been completely swallowed by renovations and additions, the most recent of which were completed in 2015.

As St. Davids lies entirely within Radnor Township, parents who choose it as a place to live can be assured their children will receive a first-class education in one of the best school districts in the state.

In its 2016 rankings of "Best School Districts," Niche.com ranked the Radnor Township School District No. 3 in Pennsylvania and No. 20 in the nation. Only one area school district outranked it: Tredyffrin-Easttown, which ranked No. 1 on both lists. Parents and students give it high marks for the

Radnor Elementary SchoolRadnor Elementary School, which children in Villanova's Delaware County portion attend, was the first school in Pennsylvania to adopt green building technologies that save energy and improve indoor air quality.

Villanova is the easternmost station on the Main Line in Delaware County, but like Rosemont, it straddles the Delaware-Montgomery county line, which means Villanova is also the westernmost Main Line community to lie partly in the Lower Merion School District.

As in Rosemont, children in the smaller Lower Merion portion of Villanova start out at Gladwyne Elementary School, continue to Welsh Valley Middle School, and finish at Harriton High School. The last two are both national Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence, and the Lower Merion district

St. Thomas of Villanova ChurchAs Villanova the community takes its name from Villanova University, it should come as no surprise that the community's most prominent landmark is St. Thomas of Villanova Church on the Villanova campus.

Villanova's history is tied up with the history of the university that gives the community its name, but the origins of Radnor Township, within which Villanova University lies, stretch back to the founding of Pennsylvania in 1682.

Radnor, whose first European settlers hailed from Radnorshire in Wales, is part of the "Welsh Tract" (aka the "Welsh Barony") that William Penn granted to Welsh Quakers seeking to exercise their religion freely. For its first 150 years of existence, the area around present-day Villanova was divided into large farmsteads and

Agnes Irwin School
The Agnes Iwrin School, established in 1869 by the woman who later became the first dean of Radcliffe College to provide a challenging college preparatory education for girls, is one of several top-flight private schools in Rosemont. The public schools aren't too shabby either.

No matter what township you live in, your children will get a first-rate education attending the public schools that serve Rosemont.

Those who live in the western and southern parts of Rosemont live in Radnor Township in Delaware County, and their children attend schools in the Radnor Township School District, ranked third best in Pennsylvania and 20th best in the nation by Niche.com. The Radnor part of Rosemont, which includes Garrett Hill, lies in the attendance zone for

The Baldwin SchoolThe Baldwin School is one of two outstanding private schools located in Bryn Mawr; its main building, designed by famed architect Frank Furness and opened in 1894 as the Bryn Mawr Hotel, is also a popular spot for functions and special events. Bryn Mawr residents also have access to great public schools in three different districts.

Bryn Mawr is one of two communities on the Main Line where residents attend schools in one of three different school districts, depending on what part of the community they live in.

As with the rest of the eastern Main Line (that is to say, east of Radnor), families in the northern and eastern part of Bryn Mawr send their children to schools in the highly regarded Lower Merion School District. Those in the western part

Merion Cricket ClubThe Merion Cricket Club, designed by Frank Furness, is one of several historic buildings located in Haverford but the only one that has been designated a National Historic Landmark.

The entire eastern Main Line, comprising all of Lower Merion and parts of Haverford and Radnor townships, is part of what's known as the "Welsh Tract" or "Welsh Barony," a 40,000-acre tract of land a group of Welsh Quakers purchased from William Penn in 1681, shortly after King Charles II gave him Pennsylvania as repayment of a debt owed to his father. The three townships of Lower Merion, Haverford and Radnor together take in all 40,000 of those acres.

Both the community and the township of Haverford take their names from the town of Haverfordwest in Wales. The

Harriton High SchoolMost Haverford children who live in Lower Merion Township finish their secondary education at Harriton High School, the younger of the two high schools in the highly ranked Lower Merion School District.

Like Ardmore residents, Haverford residents can choose between two top-notch school districts, Lower Merion in Montgomery County and Haverford in Delaware County.

On the Lower Merion side of Haverford, children attend one of three elementary schools: Gladwyne, Penn Valley and Penn Wynne. Penn Wynne, where Alex's Lemonade Stand was born, is the only one of the three to have been honored as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, but all three have strong academic credentials, a wide range of activities, strong community service programs and

Like all of the communities on the Main Line's eastern end, Wynnewood is located in one of the best school districts in the Philadelphia region.

The Lower Merion School District consistently ranks among the best in both Pennsylvania and the nation, as all of its schools have a track record of high achievement. That includes the three elementary schools that serve Wynnewood. Depending on where in the community they live, Wynnewood children attend Merion Elementary School, Penn Valley Elementary School or Penn Wynne Elementary School. Penn Wynne, home
