The MPSD Social Studies program supports high quality curriculum and instruction for all 4K-12 students in the Manitowoc Public School District.  We place a direct focus on helping young people develop the ability to make informed and reasoned decisions for the public good as citizens of a culturally diverse and democratic society in an increasingly globalized world. 

Our teachers are committed to helping students become creative and independent thinkers by guiding them in the understanding and analysis of important political, geographic, economic, legal, and social issues of our contemporary and historical world.
