Welcome to the Harrison High School Social Studies Department. Our goal is to help students become informed and responsible citizens. In our courses, we provide our students with a social, geographical, and historical framework for understanding cultures and governments on a state, national, and global level. Students also have the opportunity to study human social behavior as well as psychology, economics, environmental issues, and politics.
Our outstanding instructors lead very challenging courses. We pride ourselves in the quality and variety of the courses we offer. We know that you will find these courses, which range from Psychology to AP World History, to be interesting and enriching. At Harrison High School, we follow the Georgia Performance Standards. We use standards-based grading in all of our content areas that are designed to fit the individual course.
