The Social Studies Department is committed to the school vision of developing critical and creative thinkers who collaborate and communicate. We promote academic inquiry, acceptance and tolerance of differences, and encourage students to learn in a way that will help them solve real-world, authentic issues.
History/Social Studies teachers are committed to providing their students with the knowledge, skills, and perspectives to be responsible, civic-minded citizens. Through the study of history and social sciences, we aim to develop the following: promoting interest in learning about the past and present, encourage creative and ethical decision-making, practice communication through writing and speech, engage in conflict resolution skills, and become motivated to take part in society in a positive manner.
