Social Studies Department

The social studies department is committed to fulfilling the philosophy and mission of Immaculate Heart High School, including the goal that our students graduate prepared to excel in college. A carefully planned and rich program is offered, encompassing world history, cultures, and geography, United States history, United States government and politics, economics, psychology and United States foreign policy. Students are challenged to develop a broad and thoughtful perspective of our complex world. By reasoning from facts to reach their own conclusions, they develop the skills necessary to be critical thinkers. To demonstrate their thinking, students practice clear and thoughtful expression, in speech and in writing. Ultimately, the department is committed to helping students sharpen their abilities to make wise choices and communicate effectively as they prepare to actively participate in civic life.

A Catholic, independent college preparatory school for girls in grades 6 through 12, Immaculate Heart has been located on a beautiful hillside property in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles since our founding by the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1906. We celebrate more than a century of nurturing the spiritual, intellectual, social and moral development of students as they distinguish themselves as women of great heart and right conscience.
