Ethnic Studies

The Ethnic Studies elective was first offered in the 2022-2023 school year.

Following the Ethnic Studies curriculum established by the California Department of Education, this elective may focus on the histories, cultures, struggles, and contributions to American society of four historically marginalized communities:

  • African American
  • Chicana/o/x and Latina/o/x
  • Native American
  • Asian American and Pacific Islander

In order to make connections to the experiences of all students, themes may include:

  • identity
  • history and movement
  • systems of power
  • social movements and equity
