Our Course:

In 7th grade we explore World History-Part One, taking us from early human history through the ancient civilizations of Africa, Asia and Europe, and thematic connections between these times and our own. Along our journey we make regular stops to develop our critical thinking, research, and communication skills.

Our grading ratios are as follows:
Tests 40%
Quizzes 30%
Classwork 15%
Homework 10%
Quarterlies 5%
