The Social Studies Program

The Social Studies program prepares students to become informed, responsible, active citizens in their city/town, state, nation and world. Through a sequence of courses in Grades 9 -12, students deepen their understanding of civics, economics, geography, history, and other social sciences.

Students use inquiry and discussion to learn about domestic and global issues. They learn multiple perspectives about diverse cultures around the world.

Students read, write, collaborate, and research to think like historians and form positions using various sources.

Students have the opportunity to take honors-level and college-level courses.
