Social Studies Department

The mission of the Social Studies Department is to have students develop the knowledge, skills and values that will enable them to become productive and active citizens. Through the disciplines of history, government, geography and economics we transmit our common heritage and cultural diversity. We strive to increase students’ global awareness, instill a commitment to social justice and motivate them to become informed, participatory citizens.

This is done through close examination of text, meaningful  interactive discussion and thoughtful written response.
