Social Studies

Social studies is four or more fields of study, including history, civics, economics and geography. 

Our Social Studies curriculum offers an effective approach to providing content and an efficient instructional plan for fitting into today's busy schedule. A strong mix of core content, leveled books, activities, and technology engages students and connects to their real world every day. A+ Arts Academy provides opportunities for Social Studies knowledge and personal growth by providing research projects and synthesizing information from a range of sources.

We emphasize research, critical thinking and geography skills. Attitudes and values critical to the understanding of a democratic society and diverse world cultures are examined, and encourage the reflective study of value and cultural conflicts.

Development of a politically reflective, knowledgeable and active student is the primary goal of social studies education.
