What is History for at Meridian High School?

We aim to give students a strong understanding of past events, people and change through their use of evidence and making judgements of their own. 

Why does History as a subject matter?

We want to enable our students to think for themselves about the past and understand how history shapes our world today. In a world where students encounter fake news we want to enable our students to make their own interpretations of events based on evidence.

What does History help young people to achieve?

History enables students to write well-written essays, expressing opinions, and use evidence. The ability to do this is a skill that is highly regarded in a wide range of careers from business to journalism.
