The social studies program reflects our changing society in its relation to the world. It is intended that through a variety of learning experiences and in linking the past to the present, students will develop an appreciation of the continuity of the human experience. Our goal is also to help students realize that each individual has a contribution to make to society.
The social studies program includes history, geography, government and civics, economics, anthropology, sociology, and psychology with subject matter drawn from the humanities - religion, literature and the arts. They are integrated in a systematic and interrelated way to explain the past and current human condition as well as future possibilities.
