Students celebrate world geography knowledge
Global & Social Studies
The social and global studies curriculum at National Presbyterian School is a culturally responsive program that focuses on helping our students appreciate and respect the diversity, history, and commonalities in our communities and in the world. Students study topics aimed at highlighting their responsibilities as community members and citizens as well as understanding the foundations of our country and other world civilizations. Social and global studies units integrate many curricular areas including math, art, music, religion, literature, and technology. Students in the Upper Division participate in extensive investigations of their historical eras which include research projects, field trips, book studies, and historical simulations. The social and global studies program in each grade balances civics and government, service learning, geography, history, and world cultures.
