The Gilbert School Middle/High School Department has developed a 7-12 program that is constituted as an interdisciplinary curriculum, drawing on all of the social sciences. Its goal is to help students become effective citizens in an ever changing world. We seek to establish understandings of U.S. history, government institutions and world cultures. The focus is on enhancing personal citizenship, and widening the student’s appreciation of common problems facing humanity.
In addition to mastering content, the social studies curriculum stresses skills and attitudes. Through the use of technology students will continue to gain skills in critical thinking, problem solving, research, and oral/written communication.
