Global Citizenship, or Social Studies, is the understanding that our place in the world depends on not only history, but civics, geography, politics, economics, and history. To exist in the world in an informed, responsible way, students at Danville acquire knowledge in each of these areas before graduation.
Our Global Citizenship courses assess students primarily through research papers and oral presentation. Students learn not by memorization or following a single path of events alone, but through inquiry, debate, and questioning.
