Social Studies

Social Studies courses explore relationships among individuals in various societies and between societies. You 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?

Program Course Sequence

Program Overview

In Social Studies, students develop the key values, knowledge, and understanding necessary to become engaged and responsible citizens. Over the three-year program of studies, students begin to see themselves as an active part of the democratic process and become aware of their own capacity to affect change in their communities, society and the world.

All students are required to complete a 30 level (30-1 or 30-2) in Social Studies in order to obtain a High School Diploma. The high school Social Studies program of studies focuses on critical and creative thinking, geographic and historical thinking, decision making and problem solving, and research for inquiry.
