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 or AP European 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, AP Art History, AP Human Geography, and American Culture 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. The department also offers after-school assistance to students with homework completion and test preparation through The GROWL
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. May in room C-24 or Mr. Tucker in room C-22 for more information.
