Three girls are chatting in the hall of a high school, in the US. At some point, the second bell rings and two girls branch off and head to socials, and the third one walks alone to math class. What does it mean "socials" in this context? The text doesn't provide further details.

    I agree that it must mean social studies, although I have never heard anyone just call it "socials". Maybe it's newer slang since when I was in high school.
