Middle School Social Studies

Middle School Social Studies:

On a rotating basis middle school students take Civics, World Religions, and US History.  US History will be taught in Spanish if students have a strong enough language background. 

Civics is taught from  global perspective and will be a global study of citizenship, human rights, and various government structures, concentrating on our system of government in the United States. We will respectfully look at issues from various viewpoints.

World Religions is taught from an open, respectful, and as neutral as possible point of view. Students will take field trips to the VMFA's Asia and Medieval galleries, and to a variety of places of worship. They will have the chance to interact with guest speakers.
