21st Century Core Values and Beliefs

The Social Studies Department values thoughtful instruction that promotes meaningful inquiry and depth of understanding in order to help prepare students to meet 21st century challenges as active and informed citizens. We believe in engaging students in the exploration of ideas, events, and decisions central to the human experience. We believe that it is critical to foster students’ ability to think critically, formulate decisions, and effectively communicate their own ideas while demonstrating respect for diverse thinking.
