    Welcome to the Social Science Department,

     

    We support a rigorous, meaningful curriculum that deepens students’ analytical skills, cultivates historical curiosity, and promotes informed citizenship. The Social Science courses include Geography, World and AP European History, AP and US History, AP and American Government, Economics, AP Psychology, Psychology and Sociology. Students in our program develop the following skills:

     

    • reading like a historian by interpreting primary and secondary sources
    • analytical writing and critical thinking
    • research and media literacy

     

    We strive to develop life-long learners who are engaged in understanding and appreciating the human story and in becoming effective, active citizens in our complex global world.
