Social Studies Department

The Social Studies Department at MSSD aims to ensure students become externally aware, culturally literate, and socially responsible citizens. The best way to do this is by guiding students as they learn about how people in other places respond to various situations, whether during the present era or in the past.

In social studies classes, students recognize that the idea of questioning is taught and valued. As they discover relationships among culture, government, economic concepts, and geography, their horizons broaden and they develop a deeper understanding of modern society.
