“The world has never needed womanly intelligence…so much as it does today.” M. Joseph Butler, RSHM 

Moving the Junior School and College brought changes to the Westwood Campus. High school students now occupied all the buildings. Since 1960 additions to the campus have been made to enhance the students’ educational experience: an Olympic size swimming pool, classrooms in Butler Hall, the Terry Leavey Lemons Pavilion, Marian Hall Library and Digital Resource Center, new Science Labs, and Art Space for the Centennial Project.  Acknowledging the beauty of the campus and its importance to Los Angeles, the Administration Building, Chapel, and Cantwell Auditorium are listed as Los Angeles Historic – Cultural Monuments.

From the earliest days of Marymount School, the RSHM has been blessed with the collaboration of excellent lay advisors, women and men from different fields and faiths. In 1977 a Board of Regents was established and years later a Board of Trustees. In 2007, the RSHM transferred the school property and handed on the mission of Marymount High School to the Marymount High School Board of Trustees.

The principles of service, ethical leadership, and empowerment underpin the curriculum.  Students have excelled academically, in athletics and in the performing and fine arts, to name a few fields. Marymount High School is a member of the Global Network of RSHM Schools and educates for a global consciousness and an unshakable commitment to the common good.
