Social Studies

The goal for Social Studies at CDNIS is to provide a comprehensive education which prepares our students to become engaged global citizens. We do this by helping them to develop an international perspective that is respectful of different cultures, beliefs, global issues and identities. 

Through our courses, students will build the skills of communication and debate, so they can express their views, while also listening and engaging with others. Our lessons encourage critical thinking and analysis, so that students gain a deeper understanding of the world around them. 

Ultimately, we are striving to create a generation of thoughtful, engaged citizens who can think deeply and critically about the world, and who can work together to create a better future for us all.
