Social Studies

  • Welcome to the Rome City Schools Social Studies page.  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.
