Social Studies is a discipline that requires analytical and critical thinking skills necessary in today's competitive workplace. The Social Studies department here at EHS is committed to preparing students with the life-long skills necessary to navigate an increasingly data-driven, information-rich world. Supporting arguments, organizing ideas, and uncovering the significance of events past and present prepares students for life-long learning and better citizenship.
Our students will leave Ellsworth High School with the communication skills necessary to meet the demands of tomorrow's workplace. To this end we have selected academic standards that will enhance skills in research and writing, presenting informed arguments and analyzing and interpreting various data sources.
