The goal of the Northeastern social studies department is to prepare students to be responsible and productive citizens in a democratic society and a globally interdependent world.  Our purpose is to ensure all students will be successful through the implementation of a standards-based curriculum  that foster students' 21st century and interpersonal skills and focuses on diversity, cultural awareness, problem solving and collaboration.  Students will acquire necessary knowledge, skills, and attitudes as they become lifelong learners and valuable contributors to the workforce.  To achieve our school and department mission of educating, equipping, and empowering all students, we will promote active involvement among school, family, and community.
