• INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES

     

    To succeed in today’s global environment, students must develop skills which reflect insight and innovation toward learning.  The interdisciplinary courses offered at Merrimack High School are based on collaboration and study across disciplines. The intent is to focus student learning around developing skills in research process, experimental design, collaboration, critical and creative thinking, and applications in technology. In addition, these courses connect diverse disciplines for student learning through various skills and concepts, including the ability to analyze and evaluate complex information across traditionally separate subjects. The goal for these courses is to enable students to understand and see the interconnectedness of the world, and gaining a deeper understanding of existing and potential personal and professional endeavors available to them.
