Social Studies Department

The goal of Lakeland High School's Social Studies Department is to prepare students to be informed, productive, responsible, and conscientious citizens in our democratic society and interdependent global community. Recognizing that the need for effective analysis, evaluation and synthesis of information is more critical than ever, the Lakeland Social Studies Department strives to aid students to become creative and independent thinkers.  We offer an array of learning opportunities which examine the important political, geographic, economic, legal, cultural and social issues of our contemporary and historical worlds to prepare our students for responsible citizenship in an increasingly global society.
