Social Studies education is intended to build a common knowledge base among students as we learn about our nation’s history and the rights and responsibilities of its citizens. In addition, students will gain a greater perspective on themselves and the world as they explore different cultures, ideologies and movements through our many Social Studies courses.
English as a Second Language
English as a Second Language education aspires to equip students with the English language skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing so as to bridge the gap between their own culture and American culture. Students will have the skills to be prepared and function in the mainstream classes and become active members of their adopted country.
