Dr. Mary Ticknor

From July 18-20, hundreds of people attended Little Mountain Community Theatre’s debut production, “The Wizard of Oz.” The show was very entertaining and brought together people – including the actors, musicians, crew, and the audience itself – from a variety of surrounding communities to Lemont High School’s Performing Arts Center. This 850+ seat venue truly belongs to the community. Since opening in Spring 2008, it has played host to a range of events, ranging from concerts to park district events to Lemont High School theater and music productions. Read More

Social Studies

The Lemont High School Social Studies Department believes that students should develop the following characteristics:
• Use of cooperation and collaboration in decision making
• Utilization of analytical and critical thinking skills
• Enhancement of self image
• Understanding of how to function as effective and contributing members of a democratic society

Courses offered within the Social Studies curriculum help students demonstrate an understanding and competency of historical and economic principles as participating citizens in our ever-changing society.

Based on abilities and course level, students are expected to:
• Attain historical literacy by learning about world events, traditions, patterns and changes
• Make informed decisions that transcend time and cultures
• Understand the human experience by learning how individual and group behaviors impact diverse populations
• Achieve economic literacy by applying the process of choice and the allocation of resources and how they relate to individuals, groups and societies
• Use democratic principles to act responsibly and productively within their community and take part in participatory citizenship

Grading Standards: Student grades are determined based on their performance in the areas of research, discussion, writing and examinations.
