What is We The People?

On January 5, 2017, our AP Government students, including our Level Two Law Center students, won the statewide competition called We The People: The Citizen and the Constitution Competition, sponsored by the Law Related Education Division of the South Carolina Bar Association. In this competition, our students had the opportunity to simulate a congressional hearing demonstrating their knowledge of American history and principles of the U.S. Constitution. This was the second time our school participated in this competition and we were able to win the competition for the second year in a row, including winning best units in the competition for five out of the six units
