The Lower School Social Studies program allows students to explore subject areas through field trips, class discussions, lectures, and hands-on projects that fully teach and reinforce basic fundamental concepts and skills.
Classes emphasize an active, multisensory approach to learning and teach students to think globally and understand the interconnectedness of humankind. Students study and experience civic participation as well as various world cultures/traditions and broaden their knowledge of various types of maps, map symbols, and map keys.
