Social Studies: At Meadowbrook High School, teachers believe in the importance of assisting students on their educational journey to recognize that history is more than facts and figures, but rather making connections from the past to the present as well as making it relative to their daily lives. Students conclude their four years of high school better prepared with tools to think analytically, critically and how to be productive global citizens.
Classroom Experience: Here at Meadowbrook, teachers are facilitators in their students’ learning. The traditional stereotypes of Social Studies teachers do not exist at Meadowbrook. Students are encouraged to question everything with an inquisitive eye, and to practice articulating and defending their beliefs in order for them to adapt to an infinite learner mindset. The Social Studies department at MBK helps students learn how to create sustainable, positive change in a global society through differentiated instruction. In conjunction with Chesterfield County’s growth plan, teachers at Meadowbrook High School encourage students to be effective communicators, collaborators, critical thinkers, creators, and citizens.
Student Organizations: W.E.B. DuBois Honor Society, ESL Mentors, National Beta Club
