Social Studies

In social studies classes, students will analyze essential geographic, economic, historical, governmental, and behavioral facts and principles in the context of the past, present, and future. One central component of a great school system is a clear set of expectations, or standards. The Iowa Core represents our academic standards. Required courses include 7th grade World Geography, 8th grade American History, 9th grade American History, 10th grade American History, 11th grade Government and 11th grade Economics. Electives include Contemporary Issues, Iowa History, Modern U.S. History, Psychology, Sociology, World Geography and World History. For more information about our social studies instructors and courses, please visit our staff websites.
