History

The Upper School History curriculum begins focusing on global history and geography from the development of the early civilizations to the global convergence in the 13th - 15th centuries. Students examine the formation of the modern world through the lenses of history, politics, and geography. With this solid background in world history, students are ready to focus on the major forces that have shaped the United States such as political liberalism, nationalism, industrialization, and imperialism. In 12th grade, students will choose from electives during the first semester based on both teacher expertise and student interest.
