Welcome to Jr. High Religion and Social Studies
I hope that you find these classes interesting, informative- and fun! You will be working hard to develop new skills and understand new concepts throughout these years. I strongly believe in challenging students through a variety of activities that will make our curriculum "come alive".

Junior High Social Studies
6th Grade | Ancient Civilizations
Students in 6th grade will expand their understanding of history by studying the people and events that ushered in the dawn of the major Western and non-Western ancient civilizations. Geography is of special significance in the development of the human story. Students will develop higher levels of critical thinking by considering why civilizations developed where and when they did, why they became dominant, and why they declined. They will analyze the interactions among the various cultures between the contemporary and ancient worlds.
7th Grade | Medieval and Early Modern Times
8th Grade | United States History - Growth and Conflict
