    The Department of Social Studies plays an important role in the development of well-educated people. It prepares students to be personally and socially aware, promotes multiple perspectives, encourages intellectual curiosity, incorporates critical thinking skills, reinforces a broad range of communication skills, charges students to assume responsibility for positive change and civic action, and challenges them to imagine and create a better world. 

    Our curriculum is defined by the Florida's state academic standards for Social Studies and the Language Arts Florida Standards. 

    Each year students learn developmentally appropriate content that is delivered following a pacing guide so that students are exposed to all four social studies strands each year.  The four social studies strands are: History, Civics & Government, Economics and Geography.
