The goal of social studies is to develop well informed global citizens who hold democratic values, are prepared to participate in the life of their community and country, and who accept responsibility for human actions and conditions.  We seek to build knowledge and skills in students that will foster respectful, compassionate, and constructive engagement in civic and social processes.
