Oakwood High School is committed to preparing students to have an exceptional understanding of the historical and political heritage of our nation and the world, as well as to be active participants in civic affairs and citizens capable of making decisions with historical perspective.

During their freshman and sophomore years, students complete a comprehensive exploration of geography and world history, from ancient to modern. With this global perspective as a foundation, juniors and seniors thoroughly examine United States history, economics, and government. Learning throughout the social studies curriculum is enhanced through lecture, debate, role-play, simulations, multimedia presentations, and research projects.
