The social studies curriculum provides the opportunity for every student to develop as knowledgeable and responsible citizens. Our students acquire the ability to apply 21st Century skills, like critical thinking and problem solving, contextual learning, communication, information and media literacy, creativity and collaboration, to analyze and objectively evaluate global and cultural issues through historical and current contexts. The social studies curriculum addresses content standards in the areas of civics and government, economics, geography and history.
