OUR VISION STATEMENT
The Social Studies Department continues to be an exemplar department that is committed to the wholistic development of our students. We consistently and collaboratively work to provide a resource rich environment to enable students to maximize their potential. The department seeks to make the teaching and learning experience so relevant for students so that they will demonstrate the virtues of citizenship, cultivate the ability to make informed and reasoned decisions, develop critical thinking skills, problem-solving skills, and become positive and productive global citizens.
It is the mission of the department to nurture our students to become active citizens who are empowered with knowledge, values, skills and positive attitudes to make responsible decisions in a diverse and ever-changing world. We endeavor to deliver instruction of the core content of historical, political, economic, religious, and social issues of our world. We strive to improve students’ achievements and foster mastery of academic content and skills. We are dedicated to delivering quality instruction that will help students become creative and independent thinkers who will enact positive social change in society.
The courses in Social Studies are delivered by a cadre of competent teachers with years of experiences in teaching at all levels of the Jamaican education system and who have earned undergraduate and graduate degrees from various well-recognized universities worldwide.
