APUSH w/ A. Rush
AP U.S. History is an extensive, survey study of American history from Pre-Columbian Societies to the present. This course will encompass both a domestic and international scope that follows specific time periods. Information covered regarding these periods will include, but not be limited to, political, social, diplomatic/international, and economic trends and events.

APUSH is a year-long course taught during a ninety minute A/B block schedule.  Success can be attributed to dedicated reading and applied writing skills.  Students must be willing to commit to substantial amounts of independent study.  Higher level thinking skills, such as analyzing, evaluating, reasoning, and synthesizing are emphasized in this course.  

Successful completion of this full unit class satisfies the Academic Magnet High School Advanced Placement graduation credit.
