Within our district, we have an emphasis on helping students develop the skills necessary to make informed and responsible decisions and to actively participate as a productive citizen in our community, state, and the world.

Social Studies instruction in Gahanna-Jefferson schools allows students to analyze historical documents and study people, places, events and issues from past and present. Students participate in work across four disciplines: History, Geography, Government and Economics.
