Social Studies Overview
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.
Parent Toolkit is a one-stop resource developed with parents in mind. It’s produced by NBC News Education Nation and supported by Pearson and includes information about almost every aspect of your child’s development, because they're all connected. Healthy, successful children can excel in many areas – in the classroom, on the court, and in their relationships with peers and adults. Our advice also covers important topics for navigating life after high school.
