LS Social Studies

third grade

World citizenship is the foundation of the social studies program at Centreville Layton School. Knowledge about community is broadened through a study of people around the corner and cultures around the world. The social studies program balances textbook learning with exciting, hands-on opportunities. Field trips, guest speakers, pen pals, and visual media enhance student discovery of cultures past and present.

Lower School students learn about the importance of community membership and the aspects of various communities that make them unique. Middle School students build on this knowledge as they learn and practice the study skills needed to be successful in future educational experiences.

The difference is clear

Our son learned the valuable skills of teamwork, patience and perseverance during his time at Centreville Layton as well as the academic strategies to move forward into a typical high school setting. Centreville Layton strikes a great balance of family-like warmth and discipline in a beautiful country setting.

This past year has been completely transformational for our daughter and her positive strides have been noticeable both at home and at school. She is growing into the best version of herself and her teachers at CLS have played a significant role in her progress.

This year, I’ve learned to understand that acceptance is greatly appreciated but difficult to find. Compared to where I came from, CLS houses some of the most accepting people that I’ve ever met. I am thankful for every little act of kindness shown towards me or even towards another student. They have not gone unnoticed.


We’re prepared for this because we’ve learned how to work hard, solve problems, be independent, happy, responsible and kind to all.


The support from my teachers taught me not just reading and writing, but to embrace who I am, to learn from my mistakes and grow because of them.
