Social Studies


The goal of the Midland Public Schools Social Studies program is to develop responsible citizens by helping students acquire knowledge and develop critical thinking skills. An understanding of the world around them is essential to every student’s success, and the diverse resources of MPS can help student achieve such awareness.

We are currently using the Michigan Academic Standards which should be approved by the State of Michigan in the next few months.
