Abstract: 
Educational systems play a vital role in the formation of national identity of countries. The academic analysis and study of the materials used in educational systems and also the frequency of each one of the primary and secondary is the subject of expert investigation. Analysis of these components is a useful tool for drawing comprehensive map of the cultural politics of one country. Through critical analysis and study of 16 volumes of high school textbooks, including History, Sociology, Persian language and Persian literature from three fields of study, i. e. Humanities, Experimental Sciences, and Physics and Mathematics, the authors of the present paper have tried to investigate the traces of national identity's components, Iranian world and its representations in these works. These representations and components include four primary components of culture, religion, history, and geo-political scope. The results of this study showed that textbook authors and education planners have had a satisfying function in reflecting identification concepts and representations and theoretical discussion in the mentioned books; but they have played a relatively weak role in the field of Iranian word. The research method in this study is content analysis based on presenting statistics and numerical data.
