Social Studies

Middle School

Social Studies students explore big questions related to citizenship and Identity. Students explore who they are in relation to others in their local, national and global communities.

At each grade level, students explore topics related to: Time, Continuity and Change; Power, Authority and Decision-Making; The Land: Places and People; Global connections; Economics and resources; and Culture and Community.

Learners inquire into issues and consider them from multiple perspectives. Teachers design learning opportunities so that students develop an appreciation of the communities in which they live today, and an awareness of how our past informs our decisions for the future.

  • Courses: Social Studies 6, 7, 8, 9


Senior High  

Social Studies courses explore relationships among individuals in various societies and between societies. Students examine cultural, economic, ethical, legal, political and religious issues that communities face. These courses focus on understanding: who am I, what kind of society do I want, and how do I and others shape our world?
