Humanities

Welcome to the Humanities program page.

Our mission is to instill a capacity for communication, empathy, and citizenship through critical thinking, reflection, and appreciation of diverse viewpoints. We aim to foster life-long learners, thinkers, collaborators and communicators. 

The Humanities Program consists of Literacy, English Language Arts and Reading (ELAR) and Social Studies. Through the Humanities program, all GPS students will successfully master literacy, reading, writing, listening, speaking, and Social Studies learning standards and will be able to effectively study and critically think about how people process and document the human experience. 

In the Humanities, GPS students study contemporary and historical writers and thinkers in order to develop their own abilities to critically read, write, speak, and think, ultimately preparing them to excel in today’s global society. Together, these areas of study prepare students for success in college and career, while also ensuring students are informed, engaged participants in civic life.
