Social Studies

  • In flight, location is everything. To understand your place in the world you first need to understand the forces that have shaped your world.

    Farnsworth students realize how small our blue planet actually is and learn how we rely on each other to thrive on it. An ability to think historically and geographically is critical for any student planning on a rigorous academic career. Our Social Studies department explores the issues of culture and place in both present and past.

    Our Social Studies Department implements a strong standards based curriculum including:

    • American History
    • Minnesota History
    • World Geography
    • Additional instruction
    • History Day Competition
    • Youth in Government
