Our Mission

Our Mission The primary purpose of the Pasadena ISD Social Studies Curriculum Department is to foster in students habits of body and mind that enable them to become rational, participating citizens in a democratic society within an increasingly complex, diverse, and interdependent world. Students will acquire the necessary knowledge, skills, and values to become lifelong learners and productive citizens.
We believe social studies involves students in a systematic study of history, geography, economics, society, and government.
Social studies empowers students to become critical thinkers, effective communicators, and participating members of local, state, national, and global communities.
