Welcome to the Ramapo-Indian Hills Regional High School District Social Studies Department. The RIH District currently offers courses of study in World Civilizations, United States History 1 & 2, Anthropology, Economics, Geography, Law & Human Rights, Modern European History, Psychology, Sociology, and Sports History at a variety of academic levels. We pride ourselves on offering a program that introduces students to a comparative study of past and contemporary global societies. Additionally, students will develop skills in research and analysis of primary documents and interpretations of scholarly work. Our teachers utilize best practices in their content areas and vary their assessment strategies to reflect their students’ ability to think critically and communicate effectively. We encourage our students to analyze evidence, read closely to formulate opinions based on evidence and develop a spirit of inquiry and curiosity to guide them as they as they develop into engaged and thoughtful citizens.
Students interested in the Social Studies may enjoy participating in the following clubs and activities: Academic Decathlon, Amnesty International, Interact, Mock Trial, Model United Nations, Student Council
