 Social Studies Vision

For students to develop as citizens, they must learn democratic values and practice democratic process skills that are appropriate for their age and maturity. Social studies courses teach students these essential values and skills. Additionally, students must be prepared for success in college and the work place through practice in data analysis, analytical writing, and development of presentation skills. Regardless of a student’s career and life choices, all students will deal with politics, cultural and religious differences, and social conflict on a daily basis. A strong social science education is vital for success in a diverse and rapidly changing society.
