Social Studies Mission Statement
The goal of social studies education is to prepare students to be responsible and productive citizens in a democratic society and a globally interdependent world.Through an integrated study of social studies disciplines, students will acquire necessary knowledge, skills, and attitudes as they become lifelong learners. Social Studies provides content that students will use to understand political, social, and economic issues and apply their knowledge and skills to make effective personal and public decisions. A standards based social studies curriculum builds knowledge of specific discipline content, thinking skills, commitment to democratic values, and citizen participation, all essential to maintaining a democratic way of life.
