Welcome to the Donna ISD Social Studies department page. Our goal is that all Donna ISD students think critically, engage civically, and connect globally, so that our students graduate on their expected graduation date, ready for college, career, or military.
The mission of Donna ISD is to provide a rigorous and supportive learning environment with meaningful and relevant learning experiences that inspire creativity, character development, and critical thinking that ensures educational excellence for all students.
“All Donna ISD students are empowered with academic and life skills to boldly lead and achieve personal success in a global society.”
Goal 1: Focusing on Student Success
The Social Studies department would like to recognize the secondary campuses for all of their hard work. Several of our secondary campuses received designations in Social Studies. Four of the district's seven eligible campuses were awarded this designation. We would like to thank the teachers for all of their continued hard work in helping to build a legacy for our students here at Donna ISD. The following campuses each received a Star designation.
A.P. Solis Middle School
Veterans Middle School
Donna High School
Donna Early College
Historians in Action!
REMEMBERING OUR HISTORY:
In Montgomery, Alabama in 1955, Rosa Parks was jailed for refusing to give up her seat on a public bus, thus violating the city's racial segregation laws. Today she is known as "The mother of the Civil Rights movement." She is just one of the individuals our students learn about while covering the significance of the Civil Rights Era.
