Social Studies

The Social Studies curriculum has at the forefront a multicultural approach that ensures students learn about their own culture and those of their fellow classmates. In addition, the curriculum is connected to literacy through the use of non-fiction social studies books, in identified units. The NYDOE scope and sequence for K-8 Social Studies curriculum is implemented through this approach.

    Lower School (Pre-K - 5th):

    Projects, trips, research, interviews, and exhibits are some of the common methods used to teach social studies in the lower school.

    Middle School (6th - 8th):

    Social Studies is integrated with literacy in a humanities approach. The focus of study for each grade's Social Studies scope and sequence is supplemented by the study of appropriate fiction and non-fiction books.

    An exit project is required of all eighth graders for graduation.
