Social Studies

Social Studies is an integrated K-12 program that includes the study of history, civics and government, geography, economics and social sciences to develop responsible, informed, and active citizens in our culturally diverse society. Students engage in their studies at the elementary level with the individual child and move through family, school, community, state, region, and country. The middle and high school curriculums promote student engagement through an inquiry-based approach and are aligned with the Connecticut Core Standards, National Council for the Social Studies, Connecticut Social Studies Framework, and the National C3 Framework for College, Career, and Civic Life.
