A Lasting Imprint

Students attend a campaign assembly in the 1950s.

A focus on politics not only will help our students learn about history, geography, math, science, and language arts, but also will allow them to fashion their own political lives. It will instill in them a desire to participate in the political process both close to home and on a broader scale. Maybe these discussions and investigations will move some of our students to work to become politicians or members of government. How proud we would be to welcome these alumni back to school.
