Academic Resources

Lemont High School provides its students with a number of on-campus and online resources to aid their academic endeavors. Students may utilize these sources for academic support as their schedule permits.

Computer Labs

Technology is a cornerstone of every Lemont High School student's education. In addition to each student being issued a Chromebook through the LNS@LHS 1:1 Teaching and Learning program, the school includes one general computer lab, as well as specialized computer labs for Art, Career & Technical Education, Computer Aided Design (CAD), and Robotics.

All students and staff who use the school's computer network must abide by its Technology Use Expectations. All users of the school's computer network are representatives of Lemont High School and should act accordingly. Violating the Technology Use Expectations results in consequences, which may include, but are not limited to, loss of access to the school's computer network.

CITGO Innovation Academy

Students are welcome and encouraged to visit the CITGO Innovation Academy as often as their schedule permits. There are specific rules, procedures and guidelines of conduct by which all students must comply.

The CITGO Innovation Academy consistently obtains new materials to benefit the education of Lemont High School students.

All notifications regarding overdue materials are sent to students through their school-issued e-mail accounts.

Math Center

Lemont High School students who need assistance with their mathematics courses may visit the Math Center. Staffed by Lemont High School teachers and selected upper-level students, the Math Center provides students the opportunity to get extra help, ask questions on assignments, practice problems in areas in which they need assistance, and study for quizzes and tests.

The Math Center is open to any student during its designated periods, but students may not leave other classes for assistance.

The Math Center is open daily during designated periods and all lunch periods. Additionally, it is available from 7:20-7:50 a.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays; from 7:45-8:30 a.m. on Wednesdays; and from 2:45-3:45 p.m. on Tuesdays.

Solar Panel

Thanks to a grant received through the Illinois Clean Energy Foundation, Lemont High School was able to install a solar panel on campus in Summer 2009. The panel is located in the school's courtyard, and provides students with important information and good "real-life" experiences with renewable energy. The solar panel generates electricity that the school is able to use, and also offsets carbon dioxide emissions.

Data from the solar panel is collected electronically and posted to an Illinois Solar Schools website that monitors its numbers.

Weather

Lemont High School is part of the exclusive WeatherBug Network, which allows WGN-TV viewers access to powerful, precise and accurate weather information. WGN Chief Meteorologist Tom Skilling has access to many local weather tracking stations in the Chicagoland area, and the MotionCam perched atop Lemont High School assists in providing images for WGN weather coverage.

Writing Center

Lemont High School's Writing Center offers students and staff free writing support for any course, writing concern or stage of the writing process. The Writing Center is staffed by trained writing instructors who are writers themselves and understand the frustrations and delights of writing.

The primary goal of the Writing Center is to support students' writing needs and to be a resource for faculty to help improve the quality of students' writing. Writing Center staff help develop ideas, clarify expression and meet expectations of academic writing, regardless of the subject matter or area of study.

The Writing Center is open during designated all class periods, as well as during PLC time.
