Social Studies

The Social Studies Program is dedicated to helping students become knowledgeable American citizens, willing to take their place as productive members of society, and prepared to contribute to the further development of the democratic ideals of the United States of America.  To do this they must become acquainted with their heritage and develop an appreciation for the time-tested values of that heritage.
It is the belief of the Social Studies Educators of Cranston Public Schools that quality social studies education is a fundamental component to any complete elementary, middle and senior high education and has the potential to: Become informed, to develop skills necessary for responsible citizen participation in social, civic and political processes, and to embrace the values and beliefs that characterize citizens in a democratic society.  It is further held that democracy thrives on citizen involvement and constructive social criticism; therefore, social studies will leaves students with a feeling of responsibility to involve themselves in social, civic and political affairs. 
*Due to a districtwide curriculum change, both 7th and 8th grade will be using the US Civics curriculum during the 2021/2022 school year.
