Students are required to successfully complete three years (15 credits) in Social Studies, including two years of United States History.
Ninth graders are required to take a course entitled "World Cultures."
These three years of required social studies instruction are designed to provide students with both a global historical perspective as well as a solid base of knowledge and appreciation of the fabric of our American heritage.
An emphasis on the historical, political, geographic, economic, and social/cultural aspects of both the human and American experience underscores our social studies program.
Instruction in the required courses ofWorld Cultures, United States History I, and US History II, is presented at two levels of rigor: College Prep Level, and Honors Level. Students who meet the selection criteria may opt to pursue Advanced Placement study in United States History I and United States History II.
Additional advanced placement options for upperclassmen include AP Economics, AP Psychology, AP American Government and Politics and AP European History.
Other electives for upperclassmen include college prep levels of Psychology, Economics, Issues and Themes in 20th Century European and World History, Sociology, and American Government.
