The Social Science Department believes that the success of our democratic nation is dependent upon a citizenry that understands our history, geography, social structures, and how government works. High school students are required to take World History, AP European History, or AP World History as sophomores, United States History or AP U.S. History as juniors, Government and Economics or AP Government as seniors. We also offer AP Psychology, Psychology, and History through Film, and AP Art History as elective courses.
Every teacher in the Social Science department is available to students for extra help and tutoring. Please talk to your teacher to see if he or she is available at lunch, before school, or after school and on what days they are available.
We are also proud to be the department that guides students in the annual History Day competition. Our students compete at the county level and the winners go on to the state and national competitions. Clovis High School has had a long tradition of excellence and success at the History Day competitions. See Ms. Hash in room C-24 for more information.
