What is History for at Meridian High School?

History encourages critical thinking. Students use evidence to identify different interpretations of the past and use this to form balanced judgments.

Why does History as a subject matter?

History helps students to understand their past. An understanding of the past can help us to make sense of events that are taking place in the future.
