Our MissionCoweta Committed to Student Success

The History and Social Studies Department at Newnan High School has a long tradition of excellence. Staffed by seventeen dedicated teachers, most with graduate degrees in the field, Newnan High School offers varied and challenging courses to students of all ability levels. In addition to the subjects that all Georgia students must pass, we offer electives to students that would like to pursue additional coursework in our field of study. Student options include Psychology, Sociology, Vietnam War and World War II. Several AP classes are offered (U.S. History, European History, United States Government, Human Geography, Economics) with more to come. Test scores on End of Course Tests/Milestones are excellent, and work is continually being done to improve. The department is committed to an aggressive, county-wide technology initiative that involves Google chrome books, Google classroom and all things Google. This department also works with ipads, smart boards, interactive remotes and responders and the Web 2.0. Interaction with the community is also one of our biggest priorities. Local community leaders and numerous local Veteran's participate in our Vietnam War and World War II classes.  Local veterans from all era's are hosted for history classes at the end of each term. We host a History Speaker series for our students and the community.  We hold our own 5k race to raise money to help local veterans that need help. We are always looking for ways to "bring our subjects to life..."


This site contains valuable information on the classes and programs offered. A short biography of each teacher is available as well as the syllabus for each class that they teach. Each teacher's email and class website can be located here. Feel free to browse the information we have in our academic section, check out our highlighted local veteran or even view pictures from the most recent Student-Vet Connect Program at Newnan High School. If there is information that you need that is not available from this site, please use the contact tab on the top menu to get in touch with the deparment chair.
