Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History Affiliate School
Watchung Hills is a Gilder Lehrman Affiliate School because the Institute is "impressed with [our] commitment to improving American history education".
We will have access to History Now,  an online journal, articles by prominent historians, lesson plans, primary sources, and seminars for professional development.
Many of our teachers also attend week-long summer seminars sponsored by Gilder Lehrman.
