Lehighton Area High School is an absolutely amazing school where the teachers create one of the most positive learning environments. Going to school everyday was more of an escape then it was a chore or requirement. Not only were the teachers and academics amazing, but also the athletics and extra-curricular activities such as clubs and organizations. There is little to change during my years at this high highschool. Making friends and being part of this school was the best thing to happen to me during my school years. My friends, my work, my sports all were shaped from this amazing school.

I am a current Senior for Lehighton Area High School, and since Freshman year I was welcomed with opened arms and guided by the Juniors and Seniors. I did sports such as Football, Wrestling, and Track & Field. I feel like my school is far better than any others because of the positive environment it has. The teachers are so caring for the students and they strive to get kids ready for the college level. Also, the school itself is a safe and fun place to be around!
Coming into Lehighton my freshman year knowing no one because I went to catholic school, it was terrifying. But, now that I am almost a senior, I have come so far. Lehighton welcomed me with open arms and in less than a week I had already made great friendships with my classmates and teachers. The teachers put so much effort into making learning and school enjoyable and the fellow students never fail to say hi in the hallways as you walk past. Lehighton has been such a positive place in my life for the past years and I’m so happy that this school has formed a proper education and long lasting friendships in my life.
