Welcome to Social Studies!
Know the past. Engage in the present. Impact the future.
The interconnected nature and fragility of the world make in-depth, relevant social studies instruction essential. The mission of social studies in Portland Public Schools is to provide all students with academic and authentic learning opportunities that both ignite their passions for learning and also enhance their abilities and motivations to contribute as citizens in their communities—from the school community to the neighborhood, city, state, national, and global communities.
