We aim to have students acquire an appreciation for the events and lessons of the past, a firm grasp of reasoning and practice in inquiry and research, effective methods for expressing and defending their ideas, and civic values necessary for fulfilling the duties of a citizenry in a participatory democracy. We prepare students to identify, understand, and work to solve problems facing our diverse nation in an increasingly interdependent world.

    Through the study of Modern History, U.S. History, Psychology, Sociology, Civics, and Economics, we teach our students how to develop an understanding and appreciation of the contributions that diverse civilizations and cultures have made throughout history and the impact they have had on the development of democratic ideals. Our students study both historic and contemporary geographic, social, political, and economic issues which shaped the world that our students live in today.
