Mr. Alumbaugh teaching history

Social Studies

Our Social Studies Department actively encourages students to investigate and value all social, cultural, and economic backgrounds. Our teaching approach is centered on the belief that a comprehensive Social Studies program provides an appreciation of human culture, an understanding of the American tradition, and a framework for an analysis of the problems and decisions associated with humanity. We value the lessons of our life experiences, respect each other and our differing points of view, and appreciate those elements that contribute to the story we all live.
