Open Quote The above review sounds like it's written by a parent who is bitter that their child was not accepted. Harvard-Westlake, while larger in size than many of the other private institutions in the area, provides a far greater variety of extracurricular options. The school is able to do so because of its slightly larger student body. Among the more traditional electives offered is the school newspaper, which is nationally acclaimed. The faculty is known to listen to the student body's suggestions relating to problems with courses and courses that students wish were offered. The school offers some of the top AP courses in the world (according to the Advanced Placement Program) and the Advanced Placement Program has based several of its courses on courses taught at Harvard-Westalake. The school is housed on two campuses and offers state-of-the-art facilities. It has several outstanding sports programs, such as its basketball program.
The courses are extremely rigorous. Student's are expected to recognize when they need assistance and to seek out their teachers during office hours. Teachers tend to be extremely willing to accommodate students busy schedules and will frequently stay late or arrive early in order to help students. There is a terrific advising program for college and students also receive support from other faculty, such as deans. Having attended Harvard-Westlake, I will say that one of its major faults is the fact that students frequently feel they must chose between their academics and their social lives due to the quantity of work assigned and the quality of work that is demanded by teachers.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
