We are not makers of history. We are made by history.
~Martin Luther King, Jr.

The social studies faculty help students understand ongoing historical patterns and the interconnectedness of the human experience. We strive to provide students with the historical background and analytical tools necessary to comprehend and evaluate social, political, religious, intellectual, technological, and economic events. Through collaboration, students and teachers create classroom environments that are conducive to learning, in which a variety of learning activities are used to reach students of varying learning styles. Our aim is to inspire students to be positive contributors and responsible citizens of the world.

Advanced Placement courses are available in U.S. History, U.S. Government Human Geography and World History. Students may pursue Advanced Placement Psychology independently with the support of the Psychology teacher.

Social Studies electives include Philosophy, Psychology, Global Studies and Sociology.
