The All Saints Catholic middle school teaching philosophy provides our students with an excellent core curriculum, using a S.T.R.E.A.M. approach within a faith-filled environment. Hands-on educational experiences, that cultivate respect and cooperation, offer our students unique ways to uncover new learning experiences that are so necessary for future educational challenges.

MIDDLE SCHOOL SOCIAL STUDIES CURRICULUM 
Ancient civilizations and U.S. history form the foundation of the social studies program. Critical thinking skills are necessary to understand the complex nature of diverse events in both ancient and American history. Higher-order thinking is encouraged at every opportunity, and practiced in the classroom, by actively using techniques like cooperative learning. Geography skills and activities are included as a valuable element of the curriculum. Current events issues & social justice topics are discussed on a weekly basis.
National Common Core Standards and Wilmington Diocesan Curriculum Guidelines are followed.
Grade 6: Macmillan/McGraw-Hill (Our World)
Grade 7 and 8: Holt McDougal (United States History)
