Social Studies is taught in all grades beginning with the local community and developing into world geography, American history, world history and current events. Students learn about citizenship in a democratic society by studying the Constitution. They practice the electoral process through student council campaigning and elections.
They also acquire skills in reading, creating and interpreting charts, maps, and graphs. Students are encouraged to enter local and national writing contests. Research papers teach them to use the library, Internet and other resources accurately and to express ideas clearly. Field trips allow students to apply classroom knowledge to real-world situations.
