Social Studies

Social Studies courses at Lake Forest High School prepare students to be more fully educated and engaged citizens. To that end, teaching and learning occurs in dynamic, engaging and empowering ways that help students develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions necessary to address the challenging issues that they will confront throughout their lives. The study of history and the social sciences helps students develop knowledge that allows for fuller understanding of patterns of human experience. Our courses also emphasize skills appropriate for today’s citizens who are encountering an increasingly interconnected and intererdependent twenty-first century world.
