About the Class

History of the Americas is an advanced studies course designed to prepare students for IB exams in regional American History. It is organized by commonly used periods of study in U.S. history and incorporates comparative studies in Latin America and Canada based on themes, concepts, and skills. 

Year two of the IB history studies at Denton High School expands the scope to include the Western Hemisphere. Students who take these courses are encouraged to take the APUSH exam senior year, depending on their post-secondary options.
