• The District 86 Social Studies program believes in supporting and challenging our students to grow personally, intellectually and civically by providing a curriculum which reflects student identities and nurtures critical thinking, mindful inquiry, clear communication, and informed action.  In order to create a more equitable world, we strive to prepare our students to engage in a rapidly changing and diverse society by encouraging students to empathize with others and to understand multiple perspectives.
