Welcome to the Social Studies Homepage
The Social Studies Department goal is to provide the opportunity for every student to develop as knowledgeable and responsible citizens. Our students need the ability to apply 21st Century skills i.e. critical thinking and problem solving, contextual learning, communication, information and media literacy, creativity and innovation, and collaboration skills to carefully analyze and objectively evaluate historical and social issues. Students must be aware of the current global and cultural issues as they assume their roles as citizens. The social studies program addresses content standards in the areas of civics and government, economics, geography, and history.
