Welcome to Social Studies

The primary purpose of social studies education is, according to the National Council of Social Studies, "...to help young people make informed and reasoned decisions for the public good as citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society in an interdependent world." Robbinsdale Area Schools is committed to helping every child become productive, contributing members of a city, state, country and global society.  A rich social studies education integrated with and into all other content areas helps to ensure that outcome.
