Incoming 9th graders will continue their study of world history and will take World History II. 10th and 11th graders will shift their focus to the history of the United States, and in the 12th grade seniors will have several history electives to choose from. Below please find the descriptions of each course.

Grade 9 - In World History II, students study the rise of the nation state in Europe and the economic and political roots of the modern world, including the Industrial Revolution, 19th century political reform in Western Europe, and European imperialism in Africa, Asia, and South America. They also examine the causes and consequences of the great military and economic events of the past century, including World War I, the Great Depression, World War II, the Cold War, the Russian and Chinese revolutions, the rise of nationalism, and the continuing persistence of political, ethnic, and religious conflict in many parts of the world.
