The Hardin County High School Social Studies Department is charged with the responsibilities outlined in the HCHS mission statement and the State of Tennessee Department of Education’s Social Studies Standards. A professional team of teachers, who lead students through the twists and turns of history, geography, government, and economics, has been established to achieve a high level of learning. With a combined teaching experience record of more than 135 years, the seven department instructors average 19 years of classroom experience each. The greatest care has been applied to nurture a sense of the importance of knowledge of the cultures of the world as well as local and regional cultures. No stone has been left unturned to insure an optimum outcome for both teacher and student.
