Social Studies

Social studies is the interdisciplinary integration of social science and humanities concepts for the purpose of practicing problem solving and decision making for developing citizenship skills on critical social issues.

The mission of the Lehighton Area High Schools’ social studies program is driven by our commitment to educating our children to become responsible citizens as members of the local, national, and worldly communities. Rigor and inquiry are at the core of our curriculum as students are challenged to ask questions, investigate, analyze, and critique before they draw conclusions. Students must connect knowledge, skills, and values as they engage in historical and social inquiry.  They must be able to recognize and respect multiple perspectives and diverse experiences in order to be contributing members of society.
