Social Studies @ Springbrook
The Social Studies curriculum is comprised of several different courses available to the student as well as levels of aptitude. From the standard courses required by the State of Maryland for graduation and our Honors courses, to the Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate Diploma Programs, the students at Springbrook are given a wide variety of opportunities to challenge their minds.
To the right under 'Social Studies Links', you will not only find descriptions of the different programs, courses, and curriculum offered by the Social Studies Department, but will be able to see the work of our students, the technological tools they use, as well as areas of concentration for each of our subjects.
