Mission Statement

The social studies department seeks to improve student achievement in the social studies, ensure a systematic and equitable program for all students, and assist K-12 teachers in their mission to develop civic efficacy in all students. As educators, we strive to create patriotic students who are tolerant, geographically literate, and able to function as responsible, productive citizens in our democratic, pluralistic society.
