Social Studies Department

The Social Studies department at Lamphere High School prides itself on providing a wide range of class offerings designed to generate curiosity and engage our students as productive, positive members of our community/world. Our teachers are passionate and excited about the courses they teach and our goal is to pass that passion and excitement on to our students. Our teaching philosophy revolves around creating lifelong learners who will critically examine the world around them, with the desire to create a better world. We then challenge our students to engage in their world and to answer questions and solve problems, regardless of their complexity or difficulty. We teach our students to be active in their world and to bring about positive change rather than passive acceptance of the status quo.

In addition to the requirements of, World History, U.S. History, Economics, and Government, we also offer many elective and Advanced Placement options. We offer both World and US Honours History as well as AP U.S. Government, AP Psychology and AP Microeconomics. Students are also encouraged to explore courses such as Psychology, Law, Sociology and Current Issues. Our teachers are devoted to providing our students with a well-rounded and diverse experience which will prepare them for any post secondary pathway they choose.
