The mission of our Social Studies program is to ensure that all of our
students are historically, geographically, politically, economically, and
financially literate. Social Studies is where we learn how to be active and
informed citizens in an interdependent world. We want our students to face the
future with a firm grasp of where we have been and the skills and
understandings they need to have an economically strong, civically engaged,
intellectually fulfilling, and personally rewarding future. In our Social
Studies program, we build knowledge through reading content rich, complex
texts. Our Social Studies teachers instruct students using the GPS content
standards for social studies as well as CCGPS literacy standards.
