Heritage Humanities is the premier academic magnet program at La Habra High School.
This dual-tiered program offers a traditional pathway for advanced learners seeking a challenge and an Honors/AP pathway for the most serious university-oriented students.
The program emphasizes a comprehensive humanities-based education, requiring students to take extensive courses in social science, English, world language, and the fine arts (visual and/or performing). Interdisciplinary integration and thematic coverage within accelerated courses ultimately facilitate a humanities-centered education for post-high school preparation.
The curriculum engages both Honors/AP and Traditional (regular) Heritage Humanities students with innovative learning activities, field trips, service, and leadership opportunities, and technology; creative teaching and learning approaches are encouraged.
