Welcome to the Social Studies Department

  • A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots. -Marcus Garvey

    The Social Studies department at AMS is dedicated to creating well-rounded global citizens who are ready to succeed in our new global society.  Starting in the 6th grade with World History, followed by Civics in 7th grade, and finally US History in the 8th grade, our students will build foundational knowledge to help them understand the world we live in and become aware and active citizens.
