Welcome to the Social Studies Department of Brandywine High School.  Our department includes teachers and instructors who have been publicly acclaimed, nominated for teacher of the year, named teacher of the year, and upgrade their skills by attending seminars such as the week long Harvard University School of Excellence. 
Our department maintains its rigor throughout its curriculum of Advanced Placement, Honors, and College Prep classes.  Our diverse methods of instruction enable students to enjoy course content as they develop and grow their skills.  We are confident in saying that our passion for teaching will reach the social scientist and reflective inquirer in all of you.  Our journey of social studies begins with fun, development, and wonder.  It continues upon graduation with inspiration, fulfillment, and excellence.  Please join us for the journey.  It will be a ride you will always remember!
Feel free to contact either department chair if we can help you with anything.
