In the American Indian Public High School family, the Social Sciences department is a reliable contributor. The HS graduation requirements (or see table below from the site) for California are two years of History -- accomplished at AIPHS via 9th grade AP World History and 11th grade AP US History -- and a blended third year. For example, in the past, AIPHS, students have taken a semester each of AP US Government, and AP Macroeconomics.
 
Each course seeks to provide students with AP-level subject mastery using customary writing/presentation skills, problem solving capability, and research. Of equal importance, department educators strive to facilitate multicultural awareness, citizen responsibility, and business acumen -- we feel that we can often expect more than the norm from our students. 
 
During 2018-2019, AVID is beginning development at AIPHS. Additionally, business-related courses are expected to begin soon (part of "tracks"). A draft of the 2018-2019 calendar is attached beneath my photo at left.
