By 12k, do you mean Kindergarten through 12th grade? I'm only asking for clarification because I've never heard of 12k.

I was not taught sociology at all, but I graduated in the mid 90's. Since it is usually a college level class, I think that it would be taught as an Advanced Placement course so...probably between 10th and 12th grade.

Oh. All I can say is that it's not a required class.

Yes sociology was part of the curriculum starting around the 5th grade and was called social studies where I went to school.

Wait...social studies is sociology? I never took sociology myself, but someone was recently describing "social studies" to me and it didn't sound anything like what my social studies classes were like.

Where I went to school ‘social studies’ was general subject that included but was not limited to sociology. It may be different in other places. Humanities might have been a better term.

Okay. My problem was that I wasn't quite grasping what "sociology" meant. I looked it up on wiki this morning before I posted, but it was too wordy. Looking up the definition made far more sense.

So I guess we learn sociology without being told that we're learning sociology.

my social studies was more history, government, anthropology than sociological theory. they made us wait until university for that. But it was a small school system that had to do as much as they could with what they had.

I took sociology in high school as an elective course. It is different than "social studies" and is more similar to psychology. Not all schools offer it in highschool but some do. There was not a specific grade to take it. It was available from 9th-12th grade in my school.
