Lehighton Area School District Reviews
I graduated from Lehighton Area School District last year, 2017. Overall the time i had spent there shaped who i am becoming as a young adult. The teachers not only care about your academics but also your well being in your day to day life. They provide guidance for any struggles in life, including geometry, home problems, or any social problem a regular high school student has day to day. The courses are designed to get each student prepared for college, at the time it is a bit challenging but it most certainly prepared me for the hard collage classes i am taking today. Also, as a current resident in lehighton i am glad to see and hear the current updates that are going on to the school.
I'd like to see more diversity in the electives offered. More languages, such as French and German. More gym class, or other fitness options on a regular basis up through high school. I do like the teachers very much, especially Mr. Snyder at the MS (guidance) but the previous MS principal did not communicate effectively with parents concerning issues of bullying - from what several parents have reported. More communication is needed from administration in that regard. Tons of school spirit, and no hideous Michelle Obama lunches. Not super, but not horrible.
Overall, Lehighton does an outstanding job to prepare its students for the road ahead. The teachers go out of their way to ensure the success of their students. They push the students beyond their comfort zones and encourage students to rise above what is expected of them. The only negative aspect I can think of is the lack of organization from the administration. However, all of the plans typically end well anyway.
