History and Social Sciences

The Department of Social Sciences at Temple City High School is devoted to providing all students with an accessible and challenging program. Through rigorous coursework and high standards, students will gain a greater awareness of the wider world, the role of the nation and its political and economic structures, and where they, as citizens and individuals, fit within that framework. An emphasis on how historical events relate to current trends and realities, as well as how the former bears responsibility for the latter, will be a driving force for discussion and debate.
