History and Humanities Electives

Understanding the past helps to prepare us for the future. History classes at York aim to develop each student’s appreciation for and understanding of the past and its impact on the present. At every grade level, students use primary and secondary sources accessed through the school library and internet archives to research significant historical issues and events. Innovative assignments challenge students to recreate historical eras through a variety of cooperative projects.
