Social Studies encompass a four year curriculum designed for students to develop a global historical perspective. Through an understanding of human challenges, reactions and accomplishments of the past and present, students will explore civilizations that have shaped our history. Students will develop an understanding of the history, geography and pluralistic nature of the civic institutions of the United States. They will be expected to demonstrate critical-thinking, decision making and problem solving skills when presented with multiple perspectives. The curriculum adheres to the New York State Education Department's course requirements and the Learning Standards for Social Studies.
