Lower School Academic Departments

History/Social Studies

Through the study of social studies and history, Lower School students gain greater understanding of self, others, their community, the nation, and the world. Students learn and hone important reading, writing, research, technology, critical thinking, and map skills throughout their course of study. The social studies program includes multicultural perspectives, hands-on experiences and exhibitions, and field trips. The school’s service-learning program integrates meaningful community service with social studies topics; students are taught to recognize and embody the fact that individual responsibility accompanies membership in a community. Social studies units are integrated with language arts, art, math, and music. Various web 2.0 tools like Diigo and Google Docs are used to enhance research, organization, and writing.
