The Glen Cove Schools K-12 Social Studies program promotes students to become well versed in the History of the United States, New York, World History, Geography, Economics, Civics, Citizenship, and Government.  We dedicate ourselves to making Social Studies meaningful.  Our teaching reflects and supports an inquiry-based approach utilizing historical thinking skills that align with the K-12 Social Studies Framework. 

In addition to supporting critical thinking, the Glen Cove Schools Social Studies program provides a safe and supportive learning environment that encourages cultural awareness, civic engagement, and promotes all students to become active and productive participants at the local, state, and national levels.
