In 8th grade, students experience an in-depth study of the great state of Georgia.  The year begins with a study of the state's geography and economy.  Most of the year is spent studying Georgia's history, beginning with the Mississippian Indians who lived in the southeastern United States at the time of first European contact.  Students then study each of the major time periods of American History, including: Exploration and Colonization, the American Revolution, the Antebellum Period, the Civil War and Reconstruction, the Jim Crow Era, WWI, the Great Depression and WWII, and finally, modern Georgia and the Civil Rights Movement. During each time period the focus is on how Georgia was impacted, changed and grew.  The year concludes with a study of Georgia's state and local government and the roles of the three branches of state government.  Also in this unit, students are engaged in lessons about the Juvenile Justice System; in these lessons, students learn the importance of being law-abiding citizens and what happens when they make the wrong choices.

The World History course provides 9th grade students with a comprehensive, intensive study of major events and themes in global history. Students will build foundational knowledge with a study of mankind's earliest known ancient civilizations from the different regions of the world. We begin approximately 12-10,000 BC/BCE and continue to examine major developments and themes in all regions of the world: Africa, Asia, Europe, & The Americas. The course culminates in a study of change and continuity and globalization at the beginning of the 21st century. World History also includes cultural analysis, which includes the study of multiple cultures, and examination of major world religions. The World History course is required for graduation by the Georgia Department of Education.
