In History, students immerse themselves in a semester-long exploration of a specific period of time.

Students experience our “living history” class by taking on the identity of one of the well-known or famous individuals from the period. The kids and teachers dress up each day in costume. The classroom itself is decorated to look like a scene from their time period.
