The mission of the Social Studies Department is to support diverse learners as they expand their understanding of the Social Sciences disciplines and strengthen their creative, critical thinking skllls. The courses offered within the Social Studies Department directly support the Wake County Vision 2020 Goal to graduate students ready for productive citizenship. The understandings and skills developed here are uniquely central to the daily life of citizens in a democratic society and an increasingly interconnected world.
In order to fulfill graduation requirements, students must complete World History (9th grade), American History I & II (10th & 11th grades), and Civics and Economics (12th grade). In addition to these required courses, the department offers a robust and engaging curriculum of electives and Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
