The social studies program consists of two components: a core program and an elective program. Through the successful completion of the core courses, students will have met or exceeded the history and social science standards contained in Vermont's Framework.
High School Social Studies Core Program
||United States History
All students must enroll in a social studies class in the 9th through 11th grades. Advanced Democratic Roots and Advanced U.S. History demand more out-of-class time and include more complex information. To graduate from U-32, a student must have earned three credits in social studies, one of which must be U.S. History.
The elective courses build on the knowledge and skills developed in the core while allowing students an opportunity to expand their interests in the field of social studies. Elective course expectations require students to perform at, and frequently above, the standards. The courses listed below are in ascending order of complexity.
