Mission Statement

The mission of the Cobble Hill School of American Studies is to provide a full academic college preparatory curriculum with a special focus on the historical development of American political, social, cultural and economic institutions. The school will offer special electives and research opportunities in American History. Students will be able to visit historic sites, use the research facilities of major libraries, colleges and institutes and make use of state-of-the-art computer facilities and science laboratories. Specialists from universities and private enterprise will collaborate with our students and staff.

Our teaching philosophy emphasizes active learning with a student-centered approach in which they and the staff are educational collaborators. Simulations and real-world activities will supplement classroom activities. Learning will be interdisciplinary and knowledge gained in one area will be applied across the curriculum. We will challenge students who excel academically and establish a standards-based curriculum for all.
