Curriculum

The Middle School Social Studies curriculum is presented in accordance with the New York State and Common Core Standards which include: History of the United States and New York, World History, Geography, Economics, Civics, Citizenship, and Government.  One important goal of our social studies curriculum is to prepare our students to be active citizens.  Students need to understand the past to help them make educated decisions today and tomorrow.  Other subject disciplines will be integrated with the Social Studies curriculum. Art, literature, math, science, and value systems all contribute to the students’ understanding of the United States and the world. Educational field trips are also an important source of firsthand information that broadens the scope of student knowledge.
