Social Studies Overview

Children enthusiastic about learning.
  • Students in Secondary Social Studies courses have the opportunity to engage in learning high level content and skills as required by the State of Florida Next Generation Sunshine State Standards for Social Studies integrated with the Language Arts Florida Standards Literacy in History/Social Studies.  Students learn concepts and content in the areas of American History, World History, Geography, Economics, Financial Literacy, Civics and Government through a variety of required and elective courses.  

    It is our goal that through Social Studies instruction  students  are provided with the knowledge, skills, strategies and experiences  to become active citizens in local, state, national and global society.
