Mission Statement

The Ridgewood Public Schools Social Studies curriculum teaches students about the world around them in ways that make them excited to learn every day. Step-by-step discovery and collaborative projects capture students’ imaginations and introduce students to content which fosters the dispositions of civic-mindedness and cultural awareness.  Through a variety of experiences, students are afforded the opportunity to analyze the past, evaluate the present, and plan for the future.  The program encourages community and global engagement in the development of lifelong learners.
