Social Studies

The objective of Social Studies classes is to help students become individuals who:

  • Know and respect local and global cultures
  • Respect and care about multi-culturalism
  • Have an international perspective and are international-minded
  • Have positive attitudes
  • Have the skills of inquiry, decision- making, problem- solving, communication, critical thinking, and research

Contemporary approaches to education, developments and changes in the national and international arenas are followed closely. The standards of the Ministry of Education are covered under the PYP themes.

Units are studied according to the themes and by building connections to all disciplines. Activities, national and international projects, fieldtrips, interviews, and research projects that allow students to reflect and inquire are planned and carried out.
