Social Studies

The Social Studies department makes up one of the 4 core curriculums of the school along with math, science, and english. Students take World History in the 9th grade, Civics and Economics in the 10th grade, and US History in the 11th grade. Besides these core courses, we offer several electives geared towards juniors and seniors. Advanced Placement classes are offered in US History, which is a year long course, and Government, which is a semester length course. Psychology and Sociology are electives that are relevant to many different career opportunities. American Cultures explores many of the key issues facing our diverse culture within the United States. Model UN provides students with the opportunity to analyze and debate key issues facing our world today. Social Studies is more than just dates and facts, it prepares you to be a productive member of society.
