• K - 5 Social Sciences  

    Our graduate portrait includes attributes needed to prepare students to understand, confront, and change a global social environment that includes racial injustice and systems that perpetuate oppression.  One of those attributes is being an Influential and Informed Global Steward.  Students are prepared to live and work in a global environment, through strong multilingual and multicultural learning opportunities and experiences that begin in early education/prekindergarten. They understand world history from multiple perspectives. They are fluent in more than one language, and they value cultural and linguistic diversity. As global change agents, they are responsible stewards of the environment and knowledgeable about climate justice issues. Decisions were made about the integration in K-5 to ensure that the core curriculum is reflective of our vision, graduate portrait and theory of action.
