The Social Studies Department is an important part of every student's educational experience at Northview High School . Through Social Sciences, students will be introduced to culture, politics, history, and economics. Students will learn the facts of history, how to analyze past events and how to apply them to current situations. Every student is required to take American Government, World History, United States History and Economics for graduation. As a department, we provide guidance and knowledge that will help students define citizenship, government, and what they would like to achieve from both entities.
Our faculty is organized into Professional Learning Communities based on subject areas and works diligently to provide each student with meaningful educational experiences. Of the 32 Advanced Placement courses taught at Northview, our department offers 25% of those AP courses. Our participation in the Close-Up Foundation has enabled students to have the Washington , D.C. experience first-hand. Northview U.S. History teachers also participate in the Fulton County March program, a coveted multi-million dollar Federal Grant opportunity that provides enrichment to the U.S. History curriculum. The Department consists of 12 teachers with Mr. Mike Dixon as both chair and contact person. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
