•    Social Studies

     The goal of the Social Studies Department at Saddle Brook Middle School is to study the decisions of the past and present in order for our students to become responsible citizens and     participate in the formation of a better tomorrow. Through the study of history, our students will gain insight into the complexities of national and world issues and understand potential        consequences of actions.  Each facet of our curriculum offers students an extensive knowledge base, critical thinking skills, progressive mastery of oral and written communication, geography skills, appreciation of artistic and cultural pursuits, and numerous opportunities to examine and discuss values and ethics of the global community and the American society.  In order for our democracy to continue to grow and become more inclusive, we need a participatory, educated, and responsible populace.

    Students in 7th grade study Civics and American Government.  Saddle Brook Middle School 8th graders study Ancient History.
