Social Studies

The Social Studies curriculum for Kindergarten through grade 8 focuses primarily on the study of the United States, including its history, geography, economics and civics.

Our elementary school students’ journey through American history begins with the Native Americans, especially those tribes indigenous to New England. It continues through Colonial America, the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, The Gilded Age, and the two World Wars. Following study of the Great Depression and its aftermath, the curriculum culminates with an exploration of two of the twentieth centuries' most significant events, the Cold War and the Civil Rights movement.

At the middle school level (grades 6, 7 and 8), the curriculum also includes the study of U.S. civics and economics.

Our comprehensive approach to American history equips our students to understand the foundations of American society and equips them to be tomorrow's leaders and visionaries.
