The social studies curriculum encourages students to develop a holistic understanding of their relationships with others in their families, communities, country, and the world.
Students will have the opportunity to develop an appreciation for all people and their cultures and further recognize that the people of the world are the same as they are different. That while culture and environment are unique, God’s desire for a personal relationship with all the people of the world and their need for Him is universal.
