Welcome to the Social Studies homepage. It is the mission of our department to provide students an engaging academic experience while attending W.S.H.S. Our teachers believe the study of history is the foundation to life-long learning. To this end, we delivery our innovative two years curriculum through a virtual learning platform called Moodle; this is a combination of both traditional classroom resources and activities as well as internet-based learning. 

In addition, our department will participate in the reporting of several "academic proficiencies" described in the "social studies - reporting standards."  This is the social studies department's contribution to each W.S.H.S. student's "proficiency-based learning certificate" which is required in the state of  Maine .
