Picture representing Social Studies

The history and social science academic disciplines develop students’ knowledge and skills of history, geography, civics and economics and enables students to place the people, ideas and events that have shaped our state, our nation and the world. Students will understand chronological thinking and the connections between causes and effects and between continuity and change.


Parents of all students have the ability to view their child’s progress in school via the Aspen Family Portal. Please visit the Aspen Family Portal page for additional information.
