In 1971 the Swarthmore-Rutledge District merged with adjacent Nether Providence School District to create the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District.
The building that was Swarthmore High School is now the Swarthmore Rutledge School, an elementary school in the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District.
