The Social Studies Department at Cariboo Hill Secondary is a great place to learn. We are a collaborative group of professionals that pride ourselves in making Social Studies curriculum engaging and challenging for our students. It is one of our primary goals to help students develop critical thinking skills by using the inquiry process. We encourage asking questions, gathering, interpreting and analyzing ideas with the end goal of communicating those findings.

In response to the proposed changes outlined by the Ministry of Education, we are actively incorporating the big ideas and learning standards in both the curricular and core competencies.

A variety of senior courses are offered that satisfy the diverse interests of all our students in the Humanities. The following academic elective courses can be taken in grade 10, 11 or 12.
