The Social Studies Department offers a variety of mandated and elective courses. Although most required Social Studies courses are taught by levels, there are electives that are taught heterogeneously. Placement of students is a collaborative effort among students, teachers, parents and guidance to maximize opportunity for student progress. The department‘s goal is that each student‘s achievements are aligned with the GWRSD Vision, KRHS Mission Statement and the NH State Frameworks. The Social Studies Department and the courses we offer are committed to the school‘s mission statement of an equitable and flexible environment for all members of our learning community. All courses will challenge students and educators to be critical and creative thinkers, to act respectfully, to embrace the responsibilities of a democratic society, and to reach their fullest potential.
