Social Studies

​​What is Social Studies?

 
"An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest"
 
- Benjamin Franklin
 

Social Studies consists of the following core subjects: Civics-Government, Economics, Geography, and History, and also includes Humanities and Social Science electives such as Law Studies, Psychology, and Sociology. The vision for Social Studies education is to develop educated citizens of good character.  Instrumental to this vision are courses founded in Florida's Next Generation Standards and taught by educators committed to rigorous educational opportunities for all students.  
 
 
"History is the only laboratory we have in which to test
the consequences of thought"
 
- Etienne Gilson
