The Social Studies Program at Tappan Zee High School is designed to prepare students in the acquisition of the knowledge and skills necessary to study history. Exploring History means more than remembering and understanding what was said, what was written, or what was done in the past. Rather it is a combination of learning selective factual knowledge and building the appropriate analytical, skills to interpret surviving historical sources. As historians students learn to understand events from different perspectives. By thinking globally, students leave Tappan Zee High School prepared for a future of civic responsibility.
