Family Studies at TDSS encompasses multiple courses focusing on social sciences and the humanities. We offer a range of courses and topics at all grades and levels. From general Family Studies, to Fashion, Philosophy, Raising Healthy Children, and Challenge and Change in Society, every type of learner can find a course that suits them. Many of these courses link directly to the Specialist High Skills Major programs that we offer at TDSS. 

Family Studies courses integrate theory, inquiry skills, and practical skills with the goal that all learners develop the knowledge they need to become responsible citizens in their own communities and in the world. Through various instructional strategies, including critical and creative thinking tasks, all students will develop habits of mind that enrich individual, family, and community well-being. No longer is Family Studies just learning how to cook or sew, it is a platform for becoming a well informed and highly skilled individual.
