Social Studies Mission
The dynamic instruction in the Social Studies Program engages students, develops their cognitive skills, introduces them to the diversity of our human experience, and prepares them for their global future. Saint Mary’s Hall students represent the racial, ethnic, and religious diversity of our world and therefore study topics that reflect their current diversity and global future. They investigate topics related to the history, geography, or current events of: East and South Asia, the Sub-continent, the Middle East, Africa, Central and South America, North America, and Europe.
From Kindergarten to Form 12, the Social Studies curriculum teaches students to observe, describe, question, and discuss ideas. Depending on the level, students practice making maps, learn to organize information, work individually and in groups, and role-play.
