Mission Statement

The Ridgewood Public Schools Social Studies program empowers students to become responsible learners in the global community of the 21st Century.  Our learners will interpret, analyze, and evaluate documentary source information from a multitude of authors and time periods as a means of conducting authentic, historically based research. Students versed in the social studies are active, informed, and empathetic individuals. Only through a deep understanding of the past can one appreciate the realities of the present and possibilities of the future.  This program encourages life-long learning that reflects social and historical realities.
