Social Science

Prepare to engage and think critically.

The Social Science Department offers you meaningful opportunities to understand how society works, how and why people make decisions, and the consequences of those decisions on our lives. Classes in human development and behavior, social and governmental structure, cultural patterns, and economic systems will expand your viewpoint, teach you multiple perspectives, and prepare you to engage and think critically about yourselves and the economic, political, and social institutions that influence your lives.

Key Highlights:
  • All our courses are elective in nature, with offerings at all levels.
  • We work to increase student education around financial literacy, both in our classrooms and across the school.
