The Social Studies Department embraces the Hallmarks of the Sister of Notre Dame de Namur. We educate our students to act on the behalf of social justice and peace in the world. In the social studies classroom, we foster the development of global perspectives, acknowledging the diversity of our world. Through research, reading, discussion, debate and classroom activities, we encourage learning as an exercise whose goals are not only the development of self, but a call to community action for the betterment of the world.
