History and Social Sciences

  • The History and Social Sciences program seeks to encourage informed democratic citizenship through the study of World and American History and the social sciences. We want students to:

    • Appreciate the historical and cultural influences that shape their individual identities, our national identity, and the cultures and countries that share our planet.

    • Understand and reason about successes, failures, triumphs and tragedies  in human history, particularly as they are reflected in the ideas and actions of the people we study.

    • Prepare for adult lives of informed and active citizenship and civic engagement.  

    • Learn to assess and interpret evidence, to understand change over time, to think logically and express themselves clearly.

    Students are required to take a two-year World History sequence in grades nine and ten, and a year of American History in grade eleven. Seniors may choose from a variety of offerings in history or the social sciences.
