The Social Studies department at ESA is committed to the idea that in order to participate as full members of society, students must know something about the forces that have shaped and continue to shape peoples’ lives. Toward this end, students in the 9th and 10th grades will study religion, the Encounter (1492) and its consequences, World War II (1914-1945). The courses for grades 11 and 12 include Constitutional Law, 19th Century Movements for Social Change, U.S. in the Cold War, and an economics course with a focus on immigration.
