Behavioral Science is a required, one semester course that is typically completed junior year. We cover both psychological and sociological topics in class, aiming to help students understand themselves and how they impact the world around them. 
Civil Rights is a one semester elective course. This class covers issues of civil rights from the beginning of slavery up to modern day, with a focus on the 1960's. Students will learn about notable events and people that have impacted race relations in the United States. This class is discussion and project based, and will allow students a chance to explore multiple perspectives. 
Current Issues is a one semester elective course. Throughout the semester we cover a variety of topics including the use of propaganda, the role that race and gender play in society, and news literacy. This is an ever-evolving course in which we will discuss and explore relevant issues as they come about.
