Twelfth Grade Overview


Essential Question:  What is Knowledge?


Core Classes


American Studies Track [Even Years]: 


  • AP U.S. History: This course is designed to provide a college-level experience and preparation for the AP U.S. History Exam.  An emphasis is placed on interpreting documents, mastering a significant body of factual information, and writing critical essays.  More...


  • AP English Literature and Composition: Throughout the year, we will engage in a college-level study of American writers of the 19th and 20th century and elements of literary composition. The literature that we read will offer a varied and informative portrait of American culture: from 1880-1960, from New York to Alaska. Our authors are male and female, black, white, and Chicano, wealthy and impoversished.  More... 


European Studies Track [Odd Years]:


  • European History:  European History will address the cultural, political, diplomatic, social, and economic aspects of modern Europe, focusing primarily on period between the 15th century and the present day. In addition to developing an understanding of these principal themes, students will continue to develop the ability to analyze historical evidence, and to express that understanding and analysis effectively through writing and projects. More...


  • AP English Language and Composition: This course is designed to engage students in a beginning-college level study of  composition.  We will work to develop continued sophistication as readers and writers, with special attention to developing a broader and deeper understanding of rhetoric and how language works. Students will develop their ability to work with language and text with a greater awareness of purpose and strategy, while strengthening compositional skills. More...





  • AP Spanish: This AP Spanish Language course is conducted entirely in Spanish.  The students are expected to communicate with one another as well as with their instructor in the target language.  A participation grade is given as incentive to maintain all conversations in Spanish while the class is taking place.  This will prepare students for the free response section of the AP Spanish Language Examination that requires them to speak in Spanish. More...


Enrichment Classes


  • Capstone Project:  As senior students near the end of their Woodlawn experience, the Capstone Project provides the opportunity students to demonstrate their understanding and fulfillment of the school’s mission.  Students meet requirements throughout the year that address each part of the mission statement.  Through successful completion of the Capstone Project, students demonstrate their mastery of the school’s core values.  Thus, they are ready to move forward as graduates of Woodlawn School. More...


  • Service: By their senior year, Woodlawn students have had the opportunity to be involved in many different types of service experiences.  They now get to choose a particular issue or cause to support during the course of the year.  Their goal is to take an active role in the community to serve and to encourage others to do so as well. More...


  • Electives:  Students have the opportunity to take one elective course each trimester.  Courses are offered in visual arts, performing arts, healthy living, and humanities.
