The Social Studies program teaches students about themselves and their place in a global society.  Students learn about the broad areas of American History, Geography, Economics, and Civics and Government. As they increase their knowledge of the state and country, they also become aware of the history of other cultures. Westlake’s goals in social studies center on enabling children to "participate in their world" by helping them understand their relationship to other people and to social, economic, and political institutions.
