The Social Studies curriculum is designed to prepare students for their role as citizens of the United States and citizens of the global society. The curriculum places emphasis on the history and culture of other societies. It also attempts to help students understand themselves and the society in which they will live. Students are required to enroll in three years of Social Studies; however, four years are highly recommended.
