Social Studies

  • "Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy, therefore, is education.” - Franklin D. Roosevelt

     Social Studies includes the study of social relationships and the functioning of society, including history, geography, government, economics, psychology, and various other social sciences. Three years of social studies credits are required for graduation; these include World History/Geography, US History, and Government & Economics.
