Though Harvard-Westlake has a reputation for being very difficult, there's way more to the school than that. They prepare students extremely well for college. They have amazing resources, including mental health counselors and deans, who help students through high school as well as the college process, and incredibly supportive teachers. Although the workload is sometimes a lot, it helps students learn to time manage and communicate with their teachers.

Harvard-Westlake truly changed my life. Since coming to H-W as a new seventh grader and still, I have had experiences impossible anywhere else. The competitive nature of the community pushes me to go further than I thought I could, and I have become interested in so many topics that I never thought I would be interested in. Due to the large class sizes, I have met and made so many friends with similar interests as I have, and many with different interests that opened me to even more experiences. If you are considering applying, there is definitely something for you here, and you will not regret your decision!
I really like the teachers and the whole environment there. Really friendly staff members that helped me with a lot of documents and administration stuff :) Classrooms are interactive and unlike any other schools, I've been to. It's fairly large school in a big city so get ready for a lot of diversity! Sports here are really good as well, join the football team like me!
