HS Social Sciences

Welcome to HS History and Social Sciences!

Our department consists mostly of History and Civics teachers, but we are also pleased to offer AP Psychology and World Religions as electives this year. It is our great privilege to teach students in a discipline that naturally lends itself to integrating many of the ideals found in our Core Beliefs and Values; ideas such as:

- "all human beings deserve dignity and respect."
- "self-evident truths as found in the Declaration of Independence '...that all men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness' "
- "freedom isn't free"
- "each citizen's responsibility to uphold the Constitution and the Bill of Rights of the United States of America"
- "personal economic liberty expressed through altruistic, free enterprise economic systems"
- "Western ideals of democracy, equality before the law, property rights, political rights and religious freedom"
- "achievements and contributions of many peoples, cultures, and nations"


- "pursuit of truth, beauty, and goodness"

to name just a few!

It is our goal to pass on our passion for the "subjects" we teach to our students, who are whole persons now, and to equip them to be the "exemplary citizens... with virtuous character" of the near future.

Thank you for partnering with us.
