Philosophy

It is the goal of the Social Studies Department to aid students in developing an understanding of the responsibilities and principles of living and participating in a democratic society in a diverse, interdependent, and changing world. It is believed that social studies courses will further the development of language arts. Each student should read, write, reason, listen, and participate with increased skill after each course.
