    Social Studies Vision Statements

    Guiding principles for what we teach:

    We believe:

    -     We believe that Social Studies involves many disciplines in its quest to enrich students with knowledge of many societies and their interactions.

    -      We strive to provide a solid foundation of Social Studies skills for all SHS students. 

    -      Our goals are: to enable thorough interpretation of historical facts, to encourage students to analyze information, and to fully engage SHS Social Studies students in higher-level thinking. 

    -      We have the highest expectations for all SHS Social Studies students; we will instill discipline, hard work, and progressive thought through a rigorous instructional model.

    Overall, our desire is for SHS students to become successful and empathetic leaders in society.
