Welcome to the Social Studies Department 
Phone: 956-323-5533
Our mission in the Mission C.I.S.D. social studies department is to create a K-12th grade academic program which will educate students so that they will act responsibly as members of a democratic society. It is our goal to design and execute a dynamic, student-centered, social studies curriculum framework that links today’s classroom with the past, and the future 
Students in the social studies program will develop an understanding and appreciation of the contributions that diverse civilizations and cultures have made throughout history and the impact that they have had on the development of democratic ideals. Students will study Political, Economic, Religious, Social, Intellectual and Artistic issues that have shaped the world our students live in today.
In addition, our students will be challenged by actively participating in the democratic process, honoring cultural diversity, utilizing literature and technology, promoting research, developing decision making skills, incorporating strategies for reading, interpreting data, and examining geographic, historical, cultural, and economic situations through a variety of experiences and activities.
