Social Studies & History


Knowing where you come from, who you are, and where you are going are core elements of the human experience.

Understanding ourselves in the present moment is the first step of the study of our society. As students progress through the grades, this expands into community, country and world. Students learn about historical figures, their own families, the United States and Jewish history through project-based learning activities designed to engage and teach research, writing, public speaking, performance and visual representation skills.
