Our philosophy on studying History goes beyond the understanding of past events and involves the training of the mind and teaches our students to process information sensibly. History challenges students of all abilities to ask and answer important questions, encourages them to find evidence and assess the relevance, and to reach toward finding conclusions.
Historians, even young ones, need to be hard-hitting questioners who, when faced with any sort of evidence, seek to understand why it was produced, who generated that information and what specific type of message was meant to be put across. Bias and propaganda have always existed, and will continue to, and we believe in fostering a sense of awareness of this in our students. History helps students develop skills in the modern world and to look beyond the headlines, we want students to understand the importance of asking questions to help facilitate the confidence to form their own opinions.
