Social Studies

The Social Studies Department offers a wide variety of courses in three main areas: history, social science, and geography.  In order to graduate, students must earn ½ credit in global studies, ½ credit in economics, ½ credit in Civics, ½ credit in an elective, and 1 credit in American history.  All freshmen take a World Cultures course during Fall Semester and Early American History in the spring term.  Starting in 10th Grade, students can choose from a wide variety of courses and the vast majority of students take at least one credit of social studies each year as sophomores, juniors, and seniors.  Juniors must take a one-semester economics course and all seniors take Civics, which is also a semester-length class.  Most students supplement those classes with either semester-length electives or year-long Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
