Because the world community is changing so rapidly, we must provide today’s students with the skills and understandings that enable them to adapt to new environments and responsibilities. We must also prepare those college bound students with the necessary content material to be successful on the college level. To accomplish this mission, the Social Studies Department must prepare the students to observe and think critically; they must be knowledgeable of certain facts, concepts and generalizations; they must know how to locate pertinent information; they must develop an appreciation for continuous learning about and constructive attitudes towards the importance of the individual and their role in the life of the family, the community, and the world.
