OverviewTop of Page


The Menlo-Atherton Social Studies Department offers a variety of courses and electives to engage students. The Social Studies course of study is based on the California Social Studies Standards and Framework. The standards are composed of objectives for each grade level. Students learn to analyze cultures and explore concepts of change. Students also interpret historical information using historical research and evidence to determine causes and consequences of major historical events. Additionally, all Social Studies classes help students build skills in the development of formal thought processes and academic language. Our Social Studies department is committed to teaching to the standards. Students must pass three and a half years of required Social Studies courses to graduate.
