Social Studies

In a democratic society, it is absolutely essential that all people are not only informed but also have sufficient, substantive and accurate information to make reasonable, rational choices and decisions. Our philosophy obligates teachers to assist all students to function intelligently and have an equal responsibility to master a certain core of knowledge and skills in the social sciences. It seems wise and proper that all students approach their study of humanity through analysis and interpretation of subject matter within a thinking and standards-based curriculum.
