The sophomore history department has spent the past two weeks covering the causes of World War II and how they relate to the previous World War. Tenth grade teachers Mr. John Haberman and Mr. Brandt Walker wanted their students to experience America’s national WWII museum because the museum offers visual and interacting events to learn more about the war.

This was a great experience that most students do not have the privilege to do. It put to rest any questions that I had about WWII and since we could interact with events, it enhanced my overall knowledge about WWII.”
