Whoever wishes to foresee the future must consult the past; for human events ever resemble those of preceding times. This arises from the fact that they are produced by men who ever have been, and ever shall be, animated by the same passions, and thus they necessarily have the same results.
The Foothill High School Social Science Department prepares students to serve intelligently in a democratic society through the study of national and international events. Students access primary and secondary sources to gain an authentic sense of other times and places. The Social Science Department staff involves students in all levels of Bloom's Taxonomy, from knowledge to evaluation.
