New Psychology Course

The Wallington Public Schools is pleased and proud to announce to you that we are offering a new elective for students in Grades 11-12: Psychology. In response to input from faculty, students and other stakeholders, we recognized that a pre-college course in Psychology would align well both with students’ interests and college/career readiness.  In fact, According to the American Psychological Association, “Most of society’s challenging problems—including crime, poverty, prejudice, violence, and environmental sustainability— are related to human attitudes, values, and behavior. Psychological science, in collaboration with other scientific fields, informs our understanding of these problems and their solutions. Considering that psychology has the potential to benefit society and improve people’s lives, an introduction to psychological science merits inclusion in the high school curriculum.”  Mrs. Luberto will be the teacher of this new class.
