Home / Social Studies

Long Trail believes the study of history and the social studies disciplines enrich those who pursue it by developing a greater understanding of self and others. We employ a humanities-based approach that seeks to nurture responsible and informed national and international citizens who think critically, communicate articulately, and respect one another’s differences. Faculty model and motivate students to cultivate effective writing, research, and thoughtful inquiry skills that connect diverse bodies of knowledge. They also utilize technology extensively in everyday teaching. The Department actively encourages following student interests within the context of their subject matter. Department members also promote student input into how to reach curricular goals. Long Trail is committed to developing life-long learners and thoughtful, active citizens.

Students in 10th grade may take a Social Studies semester course in addition to the required course for their grade, but they may not replace the required course.
